I bought the Screenbound dvd of Five Graves to Cairo a few years ago. Good film. Bit of a slow start but once Rommel arrives the tension cranks up.

Here's what i said when i watched it. Hope you enjoy it as much as i.

Billy Wilder's film is a wartime espionage thriller which sees Franchot Tone as the sole survivor of a British tank crew hole up in a near deserted Egyptian town where he's given refuge by the hotel owner. Unfortunately for Tone, Field Marshal Rommel (Erich Von Stroheim) turns up at the hotel with a tank division. Tone poses as a recently deceased waiter and attempts to infiltrate Rommel's inner circle and report his battle plans to the Allies.

A real twisty turny film and well worth a watch. Von Stroheim is excellent as Rommel and Franchot Tone proves very adaptable in a role that i won't spoil but involves agents and double agents galore.

Turned up today, been waiting about a month as it was from Australia mate.

Couldn't find a decent priced U.K copy, this was about £22 pound all in, and the covers quite spanking too.

Only ever seen the first, but the 2nd and 3rd have been on my radar for ages, just never got round to 'em.

Yeah, I thought it was excellent. Might give the new commentary a listen later cos I haven't listened to one in over two and a half years. Also really looking forward to Synchronic getting a blu ray release. A few of my mates saw it at Glasgow Frightfest and loved it.

From the Salvation/Redemption webstore, they threw in a free button badge as well I'll grab a couple more next month to try and fill up the Rollin collection, although not entirely interested in his late period films, anyone seen them and can vouch for them?

If you mean films like Two Orphan Vampires and Fiance of Dracula then i like them. Got them on dvd and have seen them a few times.
