    Hi All



    I was hoping for some advice on an old British film's title / details.



    The plot involved a couple of enterprising blokes who ship a lorry-load of beer to tropical Africa, in the hope of sales to the locals...There are many setbacks/ crashes on unmade roads, etc., during which time the beer stock levels diminish...



    I'm fairly certain that it's Not "Ice-Cold in Alex"..., but noone here seems to have ever heard of it...



    I would be grateful for any advice / ideas at all.

    Sounds very similar to the brilliant La Salaire de la peur (1953, aka The Wages of Fear), but that was French, and it was oil, rather than beer.

    A quick Internet search turned up The Big Gamble (1961). It's a US film, but it seems to fit the bill otherwise.
