Road to Morocco
5 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In Paris on a bender, debonair Reginald Denny (as Dan Linton) wakes up next to bald-headed Vince Barnett (as Spike Conover). Mr. Denny notes that Mr. Barnett has taken the bride's side of the bed. The heterosexual pals are American gangsters on the run, and join the "French Foreign Legion" to hide out from a mob boss. They needle each other, and admire the same beautiful women. First up are blonde sisters Esther Ralston (as Louise) and Claudia Dell (as Yvonne).

After being stationed in Morocco for some time, Denny and Barnett begin to date entertainer Eleanor Hunt (as Honey Evans), who has those eye-catching seams running up the back of her thighs. Possibly noticing the movie wasn't working as a comedy, it becomes a serious drama when Denny and Barnett are sentenced to labor camp. Then, they find themselves playing dramatic war heroes. It's directed by silent screen star Crane Wilbur, in long gone "Magnacolor".

*** We're in the Legion Now (12/13/36) Crane Wilbur ~ Reginald Denny, Vince Barnett, Esther Ralston, Claudia Dell
