Tony Martin as Pepe Le Moko; Lily Munster as Inez..., 10 April 2002
Author: moonspinner55 from las vegas, nv

I watched this years ago on TV with a friend who swore that was NOT Yvonne DeCarlo playing the spitfire Inez...I almost lost my mind! Yvonne is unintentionally hilarious in this campy musical remake of 1938's "Algiers", featuring big, bland Tony Martin as Pepe Le Moko (for those who don't know, Tony Martin was even more bland than Perry Como and Andy Williams, sort of a Dean Martin knock-off without any of Dino's naughty charm). Pepe is a jewel thief caught between two women, and he occasionally breaks out into song (not bad songs mind you, as they were written by the famous Harold Arlen). Still, viewers not familiar with the picture's background might think they've stumbled upon a musical version of "Casablanca". *1/2 from ****
