SOS Sahara is set in a forlorn desert outpost, manned by French officers. Like the rest of his men, commander Charles Vanel has come to this godforsaken spot to forget and to be forgotten. Complicating matters is the arrival of Vanel's faithless wife Marta Labarr, who rapidly becomes the object of lust for the other men. Labarr's affair with young officer Jean-Pierre Aumont at first arouses the ire of the taciturn Vanel, but when the chips are down he puts duty above personal feelings and saves Aumont's life. SOS Sahara was partially remade in 1964 as Station Six Sahara, with Carroll Baker in the Marta Labarr role.
