A Bomb from American International
8 July 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After a terrorist blows up some sunbathers, we find smart American spy Audie Murphy (as Mike Merrick) on a plane to Egypt. On board, Mr. Murphy meets attractive Marianne Koch (as Helga), who turns out to not only be his romantic interest, but also the daughter of the man he's going to confront. Murphy is on a mission to foil her father, neo-Nazi scientist George Sanders (as Schlieben), who has an atomic rocket and plans to use it for world domination. Arabs and Israelis are also involved in this mess. The highlight involves Murphy's attempt to escape from Mr. Sanders' compound. The later "Trunk to Cairo" endeavor is anti-climactic.

** Trunk to Cairo (6/3/66) Menahem Golan ~ Audie Murphy, Marianne Koch, George Sanders, Hans von Borsody
