  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Man from Cairo

    I bought this film just to see Irene Papas in one of her first roles and didn't know a thing about this Italian British American coproduction. So I saw Irene Papas, taking a bath, during 75 seconds and I was happy. Now for the rest of the film, it's still absolutely watchable nowadays if you like b&w pics, George Raft, spy movies with French characters speaking English with Italian accent and funny Egyptian hats.
