"Battles of El-Alamein"
8 April 2000 | by Nazi_Fighter_DavidSee all my reviews

Two engagements in Egypt during World War II were called "Battles of El-Alamein".

In the first battle, British forces stopped a German advance across Egypt at 'el-Alamein'; in the second, the British attacked the German at 'el-Alamein' and finally forced them to retreat to Libya...

Scott Brady played many tough-guy leading roles, mostly in Westerns and other low-budget productions like "El Alamein," photographed in Black and White... Brady is cast here as a 'man of action' under fire with his men and suffering the attacks of Nazi soldiers...

A tempestuous, dynamic performer, from Puerto Rico, is about to be born: Rita Moreno.
