← The Apple Scene →
This pamphlet presents the visual analysis and interpretation of a scene from Josef von Sternberg’s 1930 film “Morocco,” starring Marlene Dietrich (Mademoiselle Amy Jolly) and Gary Cooper (Légionnaire Tom Brown).
The so-called “Apple scene” sees Dietrich selling an apple to Cooper and presenting him with the keys to her room in exchange for the money. The analysis concentrates on the actors’ facial expressions and gestures during the 2-minute scene, associatively contrasting them with historical imagery.
