    Description

    Five Graves to Cairo (Paramount, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41"). A compelling drama set during the African Campaign of World War II, this is the story of British Army Corporal John Bramble (Franchot Tone), left behind after his comrade's retreat to Cairo. When Bramble reaches a dilapidated hotel on the Libyan border just before the advancing German Army, he embarks on a dangerous game of espionage that could very well determine the outcome of the entire war. Directed by Billy Wilder and co-starring Anne Baxter, this was the third adaptation of Lajos Biro's play, Hotel Imperial. This striking poster, which has the linen cut to the borders, had crossfold separations, fold wear, and pinholes in the top left corner, but these slight flaws are only noticeable now under close examination, thanks to the expert application of professional restoration. Don't miss your chance to own this classic sheet! Very Fine on Linen.
