Not bad, but nothing special; the gorgeous women are its strongest point
Loaded with pretty girls, exotic locations, and double-crosses, "Maroc 7" keeps your attention, but never builds too much excitement. Despite being filmed on location in Morocco, the cinematography makes the picture look cheap (or maybe I just watched a bad print), and the director has the bad habit of filming his "big" scenes in near-complete darkness, making it a pain to try and see what's going on. The male lead, Gene Barry, is a bit too old and a bit too smarmy for his "smooth ladies' man" role, but Alexandra Stewart is simply gorgeous and Elsa Martinelli is not far behind. The 60's were certainly a great decade for screen babes, and there is perhaps no other genre demonstrating that point more clearly than these spy capers. (**)
