This picture is based on the wartime activities of World War II German military intelligence Abwehr spy Johannes Eppler who was also known as John Eppler, Hussein Gaafer and Hans Eppler. This person's character name in the film is John Eppler and is played by Adrian Hoven who played this same character in Rommel ruft Kairo (1959). See more »
The movie is based on a true story. Rommel has planted two German spies in Cairo. They are his "ears and eyes" in the British eight army. Rommel is looking for information which can help him plan an attack on Cairo. The plot is good and interesting and the film holds the story together. It is quite clear that the budget is low, most of the scenes are shot in studios. The story is told in a slow pace, sometimes to slow- it never gets exciting! The acting is quite good all over, despite a few minor roles. Actor Michael Caine acts in a minor role as a German; Hans. Foxhole in Cairo is a nice little film, nothing more, and add up to 4/10
