Directed by Josef von Sternberg

Sternberg and Dietrich’s first Hollywood film together, MOROCCO finds Dietrich’s cabaret star escaping her past on the first ticket out to Morocco where she encounters a hunky Legionnaire (Cooper). Their slow dance to romance burns up the screen. This is the film that features the tuxedoed Dietrich’s kiss with a female audience member, plus perhaps some of Sternberg’s finest and most fetishistic visual explorations of his charismatic star.
