Morocco
Rated PG
In 1930, a German movie called The Blue Angel - directed by the American Josef Von Sternberg - had made an international sensation of a disturbingly leggy blonde actress named Marlene Dietrich, a voluptuous siren whose smoky eyes and sultry voice sent out threatening signals of forbidden pleasure and sadomasochistic abandon. Von Sternberg immediately brought his prot�©g�© to Hollywood, and the result was this astonishingly beautiful, perverse, poetic, cynical movie, all about a "kept woman," Amy Jolly, in radiant finery and male drag...falling for Tom Brown, a Foreign Legionnaire with a mocking smile and a flower behind his ear. Morocco is a symphony of light and shade; its monochrome photography by Lee Garmes is a revelation,,,and the oscillations of the plot between romantic absurdity, hard-boiled cynicism and knowing perversity lend an edgy, nervous tension to the glowing imagery. Von Sternberg was the supreme Hollywood esthete. He always disclaimed - ingenuously, of course - any interest in theme or content. But he created his own chiaroscuro psychological landscapes with such intensity that, years later, an official of Morocco could compliment him on his on-location photography - for a movie that had never strayed from the Paramount sound stages.
