Product Notes

When in Rome do as the Romans do. But when in World War II era Cairo do as the spies do! Into that teeming viper's nest stumbles affable American Homer Smith a reporter who aims to get the story get it right and above all get it first. Trouble is some folks are out to get Homer first! Cairo is the movie and the place, for songs cloak-and-dagger fun and great movie in jokes. Jeanette MacDonald and Robert Young (as Homer) each suspect the other of being a spy but then join forces to uncover the real agents. Ethel Waters plays MacDonald's savvy maid who belts out a knockout version of "Buds Won't Bud." And MacDonald of course let's her famed bright soprano ring out while demonstrating what a fine comedienne she is. Perhaps because of war-torn times this 1942 film was little noticed during it's release. But now it's cover is blown. This spy-movie spoof is a joy to discover a "Road Movie", like comedy where all roads lead to Cairo.
