A bad but extravagantly made movie with Anthony Quinn and Oliver Reed called Lion of the Desert. It was made in 1981 in Libya with Gaddafi's support and lots of oil money. Quinn plays a rebel Bedouin leader, Reed plays General Graziani, and Rod Steiger is Mussolini! (for the second time; Steiger played Mussolini in 1974 in The Last Four Days)Lots of battle scenes; good for when you are stuck in bed with the flu as I was, and popped in this 50 cent VHS tape to watch.Oh, and the old TSR-era issue of S&T featuring the Target Libya game (#109). Too much system for what it was, IMO.
