Like so many campaigners before him, Tom Brown (Gary Cooper) joins the Foreign Legion to "forget." At a smoky cabaret in Morocco, he meets a café entertainer (Marlene Dietrich making her American film debut). A woman with a very checkered past, she toys with Brown, but eventually falls hopelessly in love with him, even to the extent of throwing over wealthy benefactor (Adolphe Menjou). “Morocco” is the film in which Dietrich, dressed in a man's tuxedo for her nightclub act, kisses a female patron squarely on the lips.
