Five Graves To Cairo DVD

Five Graves To Cairo DVD
World War II thriller co-written and directed by Billy Wilder.

Corporal John Bramble (Franchot Tone) finds himself stranded in the North African desert as the lone survivor from a British tank crew following a heavy defeat to Erwin Rommel (Erich von Stroheim)'s Afrika Korps.

The first place he comes across is a remote hotel in the process of being taken over by German soldiers and set up as headquarters for Rommel and his team.

Bramble is able to assume the identity of a recently killed member of staff who also happened to be a German spy.

Under his new identity Bramble learns that he is being sent to Cairo and tries to use this new information to relay Rommel's plans back to British intelligence.
