Complaining about Netflix streaming again. When they recommended Maroc 7, I was intrigued. Gene Barry, our pal from Burke's Law, as the lead. We first meet him burgling the home of fashionista Cyd Charisse. Stylish heist flick with Bondian pretensions? Lots of hot models in cool locations? Sign me up!
Big mistake. The movie has less style than an episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The fashions are the worst of 60s fads, the Morocco locations are uncommonly drab, and the cute birds are just boring. Gene Barry, who is pretty dynamic in Burke's Law, sleep walks through this.
I like 1960s/70s spy spoofs, like OSS 117 and Austin Powers. But it turns out that I don't always like the real thing. Avoid.
