Escape in the Desert [1945] [DVD]

Philip Dorn (actor)

Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 1h 20m
Quality: Very Good 4:3 b/w

This is essentially a remake of The Petrified Forest. A Dutch flier is hiking his way across the USA and stops at a lonely desert diner. Shortly after his arrival several escaped nazi POWs turn up.

This was apparently rushed into production to capitalize on the publicity surrounding the mass escape of some POWs from a camp near Phoenix in December 1944. Ironically, by the film's release date Hitler was dead and the Third Reich was in its final days, so the propaganda value was minimal.
