Storyline

This one has Nylon, an American dancer fleeing Morocco after her employer gets into trouble with the police, and she stops off at Tangiers on her way to Gibraltar. $50,000, in gold, is stolen from the ship's safe and the captain tells the police that the purser was the thief and that he had to kill him in self defense, but the purser must have hidden the money before he got dead. The purser isn't in any position to make a disclaimer. Everybody buys that with the exception of an insurance detective, Shapley, who, along with the audience, suspects the captain of being the thief shows up to investigate further.

User Reviews

Adele Jergens dresses up the stock footage.

It's in B&W, has a sultry dame, much crime, set in the 40's, and many dark scenes, so the biggest surprise is that somebody hasn't dubbed this "film noir", since that seems to be the revisionist guidelines of late. Whatever, any film that has the two leading ladies called "Nylon" and "Flo-Flo" deserves some attention just for that. This one has Nylon (Adele Jergens, born to play a character named Nylon), an American dancer fleeing Morocco after her employer gets into trouble with the police, and she stops off at Tangier on her way to Gibraltar, and that begs the question of why this wasn't titled "Woman from Morocco." $50,000 is stolen from the ship's safe and the captain tells the police that the purser was the thief and that he had to kill him in self defense, but the purser must have hidden the money before he got dead. The purser isn't in any position to make a disclaimer. Everybody buys that with the exception of an insurance detective (Stephen Dunne) who, along with the audience, suspects the captain of being the thief. With Nylon's help, he discovers that her old Morocco employer was actually the thief and was working with the captain. By: Les Adams (longhorn3708@windstream.net)
