The Steel Lady 1953 Rod Cameron Action Adventure
Stars: Rod Cameron, Tab Hunter, John Dehner
Steel Lady is about several oil men in a multi-engine transport plane that get caught in a sand storm which chokes up the engines. This forces the pilot to crash-land in the middle of the desert. Surviving the plane crash in the Sahara, the four oilmen find and manage to repair a German Africa Corps tank which had been buried in the sand since WWII. Heading toward a French Foreign Legion outpost, they encounter a nomadic Arab tribe who believe the oilmen have found the treasure of Calipha, a rival Arab leader. If trying to acquire the jewels by guile doesn’t work, the Arabs are prepared to kill the oilmen to get the stolen treasure.
Using parts from the plane they use to refurbish a German WWII army tank they find they fight their way to the rescue point for a very heroic ending. The German name on the side of the tank translates roughly to The Steel Lady.
Steel lady is believable. The old plane, old tank, and action are great. There is a shot of an ART-13 radio transmitter in the back of the cockpit before the crash.
