- Synopsis / Plot
- In Morocco the nightclub singer Amy Jolly (Dietrich) meets two men, a soldier, Tom Brown (Gary Cooper) and a millionaire, La Bessiere(Adolphe Menjou). She falls in love with the soldier, though the millionaire wants to marry her.
"You’d better go now, I’m beginning to like you," purrs cabaret singer Marlene Dietrich to cocky young soldier boy Gary Cooper. If you’re going to see just one Foreign Legion movie, make it MOROCCO: Dietrich (in her first American film appearance) and Cooper are downright gorgeous, and von Sternberg transforms the two-bit cantinas and barracks of Mogador into a splendid landscape of light & shadow.
