Storyline

James FitzPatrick begins the visit to Algiers with references to high-seas piracy and Commodore Perry's armada. The French influence on the North Africa is reviewed, we visit the Casbah and later a typical Arab family. Then it's on to Morocco: Casablanca, a cultural crossroads, Rabat with its sultan's palace and crowded market, and Marrakech with its fine hotel (the Mamounia) and a busy town square.

Glimpses of Morocco and Algiers (1951)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series continues with this nice entry that visits Morocco and Algiers. It also visits Casablanca and a few other cities so I'm not sure why the title wasn't longer or a tad bit broader. This is another interesting entry in the series as we get to look at the three cities I already mentioned as well as other sites like the LaMona Hotel in Antwerpen. FitzPatrick, through his narration, also talks about how poor some of these cities are and it really struck me, after seeing dozens of these shorts, at how open, honest and respect he is. Not once do I recall FitzPatrick making fun of the people who live in these cities instead he just tells stories and tries to give viewers some nice information no matter the religion or political views a said city or country has. There's one scene in the movie where I believe it's FitzPatrick who talks a man into talking to him as it's clear the man has never seen a movie camera before. Another interesting aspect, especially in today's times, is all the talk about pirates and how the U.S. government use to pay them to leave us alone.
