Morocco ★★★½

Marlene Dietrich, named "Amy Jolly," wearing a tux, singing in French, shaking dudes hands and kissing women. And fighting for love. Quite an outing. Gary Cooper is still a big ol' dork. It's always amusing when he tries to be cool.

Much of the film feels like it's going through the motions, but there are several stylish sequences and a handful of witty dialogue exchanges to elevate the story.

"You better go now. I'm... Beginning to like you."

The final 10 minutes are A+ romantic movie magic.
