Considering that "Maroc 7" has an overall IMDb score of 4.6, I sure expected it to be a bad film. While in theory, a 5.0 would indicate an average film, here on IMDb the number is probably closer to 6.5--and 4.6 strongly indicates BAD. But, I was surprised--the film was actually a decent little film--not a work of genius but well worth seeing.
The film begins with a guy, Simon Grant (Gene Barry) approaching a woman (Cyd Charisse) who owns a studio that photographs pretty models. He's come to tell her he KNOWS her secret--that she is a world-class thief AND that he's planning on coming with her on her next caper. This takes her and her groups of models to Morocco. But WHAT is the item she plans to steal? And how much do the ladies and their photographer know? And, just who is Grant--who is he working for and what is HIS motivation? While not a brilliant caper film, it is nice and benefits from nice scenery and pretty ladies. It's interesting and well worth your time--especially if you are in the mood for a bit of escapism.
