In a remote oasis hotel in the Sahara Desert, British soldier Corporal John Bramble (Franchot Tone) impersonates a servant in order to get information from the inn's newest "guests": invading Afrika Korps tank troops and their commander, Gen. Irwin Rommel (Erich von Stroheim). Things get tricky when Bramble learns the servant was really a German spy, in this WWII espionage tale from director/co-writer Billy Wilder. With Anne Baxter, Akim Tamiroff. 97 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
