Starring John Mills, Sylvia Syms, Harry Andrews and Anthony Quayle, the British World War Two classic Ice Cold in Alex is released for the first time on Blu-Ray by Optimum Home Entertainment on 13th June 2011.

WWII, North Africa. When the Germans begin an attack on the Allied held town of Tobruck in Libya, an evacuation is ordered. A fatigued transport pool Officer Captain Anson (John Mills) and his loyal MSM Tom Pugh (Harry Andrews) commandeer a battered old ambulance, and taking aboard two nurses left behind, they decide to cross the desert back to British lines. They soon encounter a South African officer, Captain Van der Poel (Anthony Quayle) whose two large bottles of gin persuade Anson to let him travel with them. All manner of obstacles threaten to curtail their progress through the desert - a minefield, a broken suspension spring, some quick-sand - and Van der Poel quickly arouses suspicion with his obsessive attachment to his large and mysterious backpack, and lack of knowledge of South African tea-brewing techniques. All the while, all that sustains them is Captain Anson's promise of the tall, frothy, ice-cold glasses of beer that await them upon their arrival in Alexandria (the "Alex" of the title.

Adapted by Christoper Landon from his own classic novel and based on his own experiences serving in North Africa, Ice Cold in Alex is a rip-roaring tale of determination, courage and ingenuity in the most unforgiving of environments, and the friendships that are born out of such endurance.

  • Interview with Sylvia Syms
  • A Very British War documentary
