Crazy Credits

[prologue] Strongly entrenched in their Alkazabas, the Berber Chiefs of the Atlas Mountains live in the South of Morocco like feudal lords of the Middle Ages. Baroud means a war between the Kabilas or tribes. The Mountain Range of the Atlas is under the protection of France which maintains order by means of the Spahis, squadrons of colonial cavalry whose ranks both French and natives fight together against the common enemy.

Rex Ingram's Farewell
15 January 2011 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Apparently this Rex Ingram talkie was released as LOVE IN MOROCCO in 1933,an English version of the French BAROUD.

The English version stars Ingram as a Frenchman who falls for Zinah (Rosita Garcia) but this mismatch (for religious reasons) is frowned upon by her brother (Pierre Batcheff) who has fallen for a French chanteuse (Laura Salerni). There's also a tribal war (baroud) which thins out the population.

The Moroccan visuals are solid but the sound is weak, with lots of silent segments. Ingram is handsome but he can't act. Batcheff is quite striking and is a better actor than Ingram. Batcheff apparently died soon after this film was completed. Garcia is OK, and there's also a slave who acts as comic relief (Arabella Fields) who has her moments.

The film is historic as Ingram's only talkie and his final film. Add to this his co-director was silent star Alice Terry. She apparently directed scenes in which Ingram appeared. Terry is listed on IMDb as a cast member but I sure never saw her.

As the IMDb review mentions, there's a very moving scene at the film's finale where Ingram (on horseback) turns and waves to the camera (and the city) and then rides off into the desert sands. Rex's farewell to filmmaking.

When I asked Kevin Brownlow about this film, his comment was something like "Oy vey, what a mess." Yes, I guess. The parts were greater than the whole.
