Classic Film: "Sahara," part of the Headed to the Movies! film series

Date(s): August 2, 2012
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: Annenberg Presidential Conference Center's Hagler Auditorium

(1943, 99 minutes, black & white) Directed by Zoltan Korda. Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) leads an abandoned tank unit heading to rejoin the American command after the fall of Tobruk in North Africa in the midst of WWII. Beginning with a crew of just three, the tank picks up British, French, South African and Sudanese soldiers along the way, becoming a microcosm of the Allied forces. The group then works together in a standoff against a much larger German unit, hoping to delay the Germans from rejoining the war.

Beverages are provided courtesy of Bryan Coca Cola Bottling Company and popcorn is available at no cost. Refreshments are available in the lobby in the hour preceding the start of each movie.
