Meet me in Morocco
9 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What makes this rather dull and clichéd Casbah-style episode stand out is the stellar cast, none of whom can be faulted for what amounts to a rehash of any number of Hollywood flicks set in North Africa in the 1940s and 50s. Veteran leading man Phil Carey plays an American engineer in search of his ne'er do well kid brother (Guy Stockwell) who works for a smuggler in Morocco. Ed Cianelli is the local constable and Theo Marcus essays a Sidney Greenstreet-type villain. Best of all, a young Barry Gordon plays a street urchin who helps Carey in his search. The use of Burbank back lots for Tangiers is not convincing and a cliff scene clearly was lensed in California, but we go along with it because all the actors give it their best. I think this may have been the first time the word "heroin" was used in a TV show.
