Directed by Billy Wilder: Five Graves to Cairo (1943), A Foreign Affair (1948) 2 x DVD5
Two 1940s classics by Billy Wilder, one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of the studio era, are coming to DVD for the first time ever from Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The two-disc "Directed by Billy Wilder" set includes the wartime espionage thriller Five Graves to Cairo (1943) and the delightfully cynical comedy A Foreign Affair (1948).

Five Graves to Cairo
John J. Bramble (Franchot Tone), the sole survivor of a British tank crew, makes his way to the desolate desert town of Sidi Halfaya. There he is given refuge by Farid (Akim Tamiroff), a hotel owner, and Mouche (Anne Baxter), a French chambermaid, who prepare to receive Field Marshall General Erwin Rommel (Erich Von Stroheim) and his German staff. Posing as the hotel's waiter, a German spy who was killed in an air raid, Bramble attempts to infiltrate Rommel's inner circle and report the general's plans to the Allies...

A Foreign Affair
Phoebe Frost (Jean Arthur), an upright Iowa Republican member of Congress, travels to Berlin to look into reports of corruption among the occupying American forces. She enlists an Army captain (John Lund) in her crusade and finds herself falling for him, unaware that he's the man romantically involved with a German cabaret singer (Marlene Dietrich) who can lead army investigators to a high-level Nazi war criminal.
