Description by OLDIES.com:
Tough-guy Raft investigates the wartime theft of $100 million in gold hidden somewhere in the Algerian desert. Solid film noir with action, adventure and?Irene Papas in a tub!
It's hardly a coincidence that George Raft made so many films outside the U.S. when he began to have income-tax problems in the early 1950s. THE MAN FROM CAIRO casts Raft as an American vacationing in Algiers. In short order, he becomes involved with a group of mercenaries who are searching for a fortune in gold that was lost somewhere in the desert during WW II. Gianna Maria Canale co-stars as a sexy nightclub chanteuse who, like everyone else in the film, isn't all she seems to be. This Italian-financed melodrama was released in Great Britain as CRIME SQUAD.
