The Reviews for The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel (1951) 1080p

Continuiously watchableReviewed byal-eatonVote: 7/10

I cannot count the number of times I've seen this excellent film. It is endlessly watchable. James Mason plays a very believable Rommel (at least he looked the proper age unlike the actor who played him in PATTON). True, this is an idolized portrait of Rommel, whose reputation in history (after all he was Hitler's favorite general, an autocratic and egotistical warrior who served his Furher with skill and zeal) was salvaged because of his final opposition to Hitler, an action that caused his death on Hitler's orders. It would be interesting, as one reviewer wrote, to see a German filmmaker's take on Rommel's life.

The script is tight, giving the cast excellent opportunities to create intelligent and believable characters. To the film's credit, the historical events are generqally presented with fairly good accuracy. As a side note: the voice of British General Desmond Morris (upon whose biography the film is based and who gives a running narration throughout) was dubbed by actor Michael Rennie (THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL), but who is not credited.

Despite flaws that mark all historical movies of any age, but especially biographies, I highly recommend THE DESERT FOX, especially for it's acting.

big disappointmentReviewed bydbogosian-1Vote: 7/10

I hoped to learn something from this movie, but I was disappointed. It is all about Rommel and lauds him as a great general, but at no time in this entire movie did we ever get an idea of why he was great. What made him so successful? Was it his drive, his unwillingness to accept defeat, his discipline with his men? I was looking for a Patton-like rendition that really gets into the character, but this fell way flat. Most of the dialog is contrived and sensationalized, and feels stale and artificial. There is some good action here and there, but not much. The tail end of the story, which discusses his involvement in the plot to assassinate Hitler, was the most informative part and probably the most interesting. But as a history lesson on Germany's greatest general, this was a failure.

A great, well-acted film, ruined somewhat by endless stock footageReviewed byHancock_the_SuperbVote: 8/10

As a character drama, "The Desert Fox" is a superb film; well-written, intelligent dialogue, likeable and well-developed characters, and no ridiculous, hammy "foreign accents" by the film's mostly British and American actors (except for maybe Luther Adler as Hitler); I would've given this flick a nine, or maybe even a ten, if it hadn't been for the stock footage.

I know this wasn't meant to be a battle-heavy picture, but the continual use of stock footage to supplement for action (esp. the three and a half minute long stretch of D-Day footage) is grating. I had to take off at least a star for that.

Otherwise, this is a great film; well-acted, well-written, and realistic. Mason is good (if not terribly exciting) as Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, my second-favorite military hero in history (after Winfield Scott Hancock, from whom I got my screen name), and the supporting cast is superb as well, standouts being Leo G. Carrol as the somewhat cynical and humanistic yet rigidly loyal Field Marshall Von Rundstedt, and Luther Adler, who (in what is essentially a cameo) portrays Adolf Hitler perfectly - a man who is evil (by most everyone's standards) and flamboyant, with his exaggerated hand movements, eccentric military tactics, and his sudden fits of temper (his dialogue scene with Rommel before he decides to join the plot against Hitler for good) - but also a human side - he listens to his subordinates (though doesn't always agree with them), and he even gets to crack a joke about Herman Goering ("When you are fat you do not move so fast") - both Hitler and Goering had appealing senses of humor, though Goering was obviously the more public joker. You can sense, even in Adler's minimal screen time, how Hitler got to be so powerful.

I give this film eight stars for reasons stated above.
