Morocco is a 1930 American movie directed by Josef von Sternberg. In faraway Morocco during the Rif War, nightclub singer Amy Jolly performs mainly for members of the Foreign Legion stationed there or rich businessmen who have made a trip to the northwestern African country. So it happens that Amy is torn between the desire for two entirely different men: between the rich gentleman La Bessiere and the simple foreign legionnaire Tom Brown. Considering his situation for Amy's favor in competition with the wealthy La Bessiere to be hopeless, he breaks off contact with her and moves out with his unit.
