From Salem to Morocco, he searched for the woman he loved.
8 March 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Just picture yourself as a teenager in 1954 and this film comes out. It starts as a western, it has a bit of a pirate movie, and then it switches to one of those "Ali Baba" type of films that people used to enjoy so much. Enough? No, there is more, there is the beautiful Rhonda Fleming, Mamie Van Doren and a whole bunch of contestants for the Miss Universe title. Lucky the ones who had the chance of seeing it at that time. I didn't, so I saw it recently and I tried to see it as if I would be in the past. I enjoyed it. Jeff Chandler is Starbuck, a fur trapper who falls for Rhonda Fleming when he comes to Salem. She breaks up her engagement because she also falls for him, but she cannot find him, so she leaves him a letter and sails with her father to Marseilles. They are attacked by Moroccan pirates and she is sold as a slave for a harem. Of course Starbuck goes after her. It is hard for somebody nowadays to accept this movie, the times have changed, but for those teenagers who are now in their sixties it will always be meaningful.
