Love Tails of Morocco – 1931 MGM Dogville Short

By ,
Over the past month or so we’ve posted two of MGM’s short comedies from their “Dogville” series. Today we present yet another in the series, this one titled “Love Tails of Morocco”. This 1931 comedy parodies the classic “Foreign Legion” films of the era.
This Dogville short takes place at an outpost in the Dogville Foreign Legion. As the story opens, the soldiers watch a newsreel, which includes the opera singer Galli Cur (a spoof of Amelita Galli-Curci) sing an aria. After the show, they go to the local bar and tell each other the stories behind the reason they joined the legion. All the stories are about how women did them wrong in one way or another. They all agree that they are fed up with women, until a certain visitor shows up.
