When in Rome, do as the Romans do. But when in World War II-era Cairo, do as the spies do! Into that teeming vipers 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 thereal agents. Ethel Waters plays MacDonalds savvy maid who belts out a knockout version of Buds Wont Bud. And MacDonald, of course, lets 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 its release. But now its cover is blown. This spy-movie spoof is a joy to discover, a Road Movie-like comedy where all roads lead to Cairo.
