*An extremely rare Audie Murphy movie. Very few prints of TRUNK TO CAIRO exist. After an extensive search we found what we believe to be the best surviving elements. We are pleased to make this available here on DVD. The quality is good – but one should not expect state-of-the-art digitally re-mastered quality. We are proud to present TRUNK TO CAIRO, it is a treasure for those who truly wish to see this wonderful Audie Murphy film.
