Five Graves to Cairo (1943)-Early Billy Wilder

On TMC today 9/22/16- Early Billy Wilder WW II set Five Graves to Cairo (1943) with a great Miklos Rozsa score  cast with another future Oscar winner Anne Baxter-very believable as a Frenchwoman working in a hotel occupied by Field Marshall Rommel (played by the great Eric Von Stroheim).  Franchot Tone was very good here as the British soldier caught behind enemy lines posing as a hotel waiter to spy.
