The Man From Cairo (Italian: Dramma nella Kasbah/Avventura ad Algeri) is a 1953 British, Italian American international co-production film-noir starring George Raft, who plays a man that is mistaken for a detective by the French and is sent to find lost World War II gold in Algiers, despite the film's title.

The 1953 picture was the last completed film in which Raft had top billing[2] and the final feature film of director Ray Enright. The film was shot on location in Algeria.
