    Yeah, interesting photographs - but a pity about the Grauniad's caption-writer's mix of slight facts and jokiness.

    Worth waiting for ...
    Ice Cold In Alex (1958) ... sexy publicity still (sadly not featured in the movie print) ...
    Captain Anson (John Mills) and Sister Diana Murdoch (Sylvia Syms) and the original theatrical trailer in HD.

    This great film is why I am so happy I join Britmovies. No one on here gets bored of taking about vintage movies. I just love this film.

    It was nice to see an earlier post mention a favourite of mine: Sea of Sand.

    A great film that imo has never got an ounce of the recognition it should have.

    This is one of my favourite WW2 films, great stuff and what a beautiful woman Sylvia Syms was back then (and now of course).

    Sylvia Sims is someone easy to admire. Candid to the point of being rude, so refreshing in an industry of hypocrics. Not so vain to appear now as a larger, grizzled older women. Wasn't she drop dead gorgeous when younger? I so admire her, and count Sylvia amongst my most favourite actresss' Judi Dench, Helen Mirren and Hannah Gordon are also on that list. Long may she appear

    That still was Not part of the Advertising Campaign. Here's the Original release stills, notice the much more restrained scene pic.

    I've posted the advance poster also, I think it so sums up the film...

    In 2004 our fellow correspondent Genevieve's Mechanic commented on "Katie" being "wound" up the hill by the starting handle. During my army service I met the driver of the Scammel Wrecker lorry of the RASC which winched her up by cable attached to her rear, the Scammel being conveniently hidden over the hill! Pre Colonel Ghaddafi, the British Army were stationed in Libya, the ruler being, I think, King Idris who was eventually deposed by Ghaddafi, the latter supposedly being a loyal relative.

    Count me as another Carlsberg fan, courtesy of the bar scene. I've even been able to convert one of my beer-hating friends at the conclusion of a screening of 'Alex' on a hot dry day in August.

    It hadn't occurred to me until you said that - but whenever I'm in a hot country and longing for a drink, what I do visualise [and what I eventually order when possible] is a long, cool Carlsberg. Amazing how this scene permeates one's subconscious.

    This is one of the best British war films, a true classic! There is a scene where the German officer goes into the ambulance to check it out. That officer is none other than Walter Gotell who left Germany before the war and came to England. He was cast as "German Officer" in many war films starting in 1940. He later was cast as the head of the KGB in the BOND films. Check his bio out on britishwarfilmscanada

    Hi,and welcome to our gang.
    I never realised he was born in Germany. My first recollection of Walter was playing Chief Superintendent Cullen in Softly Softly. Just a quick glance at his work on the IMDB,he was chosen to play Gogol as he had a close resemblance to the real Soviet spy chief,Lavrenti Beria (Gogol wasn't a bad man compared to that murdering butcher) and his last few years was working in the United States. A great actor.
    By the way,I too loved Ice Cold In Alex - a great war film and the delightful Sylvia at her most sexiest.

    Can you repost those stills, Paul (Waines)? A sad sight when you scroll back up.





    Ice Cold in Alex, Wet in London

    12th November 1957. From the sunshine of Libya to the drizzle of Britain come film stars John Mills and Sylvia Syms, Anthony Quayle (back left) and Harry Andrews (back right). They arrived at London Airport from the Libyan desert, where for the past six weeks they have been living under canvas while filming 'Ice Cold in Alex', a story of the war in the desert in 1942.
