Storyline

This Dogville short takes place at an outpost in the Dogville Foreign Legion. As the story opens, the soldiers watch a newsreel, which includes the opera singer Galli Cur (a spoof of Amelita Galli-Curci) sing an aria. After the show, they go to the local bar and tell each other the stories behind the reason they joined the legion. All the stories are about how women did them wrong in one way or another. They all agree that they are fed up with women, until a certain visitor shows up. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Fun Dogville Short Spoofing the Legion
14 July 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Love-Tails of Morocco (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fun entry in MGM's "Dogville" series, which of course has dogs playing the parts that you'd normally see humans doing. This film is a spoof of the Foreign Legion movies that were popular at the time as four dogs sit around and discuss why they entered the Legion. All four dogs tell their stories that deal with women that did them wrong. The Dogville series has always been hit and miss with me but there's no question that these are the most surreal shorts from this era. The site of having dogs walking, talking, kissing and doing a variety of others things just comes off very strange and especially with the technology used at the time, which usually meant strings being tried to the dogs to get them to "act" the way the directors wanted. This entry has a few very funny moments including one where one of the dogs killed four woman because of their nagging at a bridge game. Another good story has a dog coming home and catching his wife with another dog. One of the funniest bits happens in the third story when two dogs go for a gun duel but things don't go as planned. I'm sure many animal lovers might be offended to see how some of the dogs were treated so it's hard to recommend these movies but if you think you can handle it (and there's nothing violent mind you) then this here is one of the best.
