First Monday Movies at Excelsior on Monday, March 5, 6:30-8:30pm

The movie for this month is Morocco with Marlene Dietrich and Gary Cooper, directed by Josef von Sternberg.  A cabaret singer arrives in Morocco and continues her wicked career by enslaving all the men in sight, until she finally falls in love.

Morocco was nominated for Best Actress (Marlene Dietrich), Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography in 1930 but lost out to Marie Dressler in Min and Bill, Cimarron and Tabu. Watch the movie and decide for yourself if it deserved and Oscar or not!
