Five Graves to Cairo DVD (1943)
June 1942. The British Army, retreating ahead of victorious Rommel (Erich Von Stroheim), leaves a lone survivor on the Egyptian border--Corporal John Bramble (Franchot Tone), who finds refuge at a remote desert hotel...soon to be German HQ. To survive, Bramble assumes an identity which proves perilous. The new guest of honor is none other than Rommel, hinting of his secret strategy, code-named 'five graves.' And the fate of the British in Egypt depends on whether a humble corporal can penetrate the secret...
Starring: Franchot Tone, Erich Von Stroheim, Anne Baxter
Viewer Quote: "FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO is a superb and suspenseful spy thriller set in an atmospheric war background. And thanks to the great Billy Wilder it's a great movie that simply refuses to age in its appeal. There is a classic moment in the film: Rommel, sitting up in bed as Mouche (Anne Baxter) enters with his breakfast, "I don't like women in the morning" he declares and when she pours his coffee and with a gesture of the back of his hand he instructs her to "take two steps back please". This WWII movie is an unexpected delight."
