“How can anyone so ugly be so handsome?”
(Marta Toren to Bogie)….what a great line! I’m surprised it hasn’t gone down in the lexicon of great movie quips…and it captures perfectly the paradoxical mystery of Bogie’s eternal charm, as well as the mystery of how an essentially mediocre film can be redeemed by its own dry, sardonic charm (due largely to help from fine supporting players as much as from Bogie), some great B/W photography, and a persistently downbeat refusal to push any sort of patriotic agenda.(adding greatly to that charm quotient.) The postwar noir influence is in fine fettle here. So Bogie doesn’t exactly have a great motivation for his final decision? He just changed his mind, that’s all. Take it or leave it. “I’ve taken long chances before. Okay.” What could be better than that? It’s the way people act every day. Every good critical eye without a mote in it knows that this film is safely and securely within the universe of the best product Hollywood ever put out, a great, mordant, counterweight universe to the unwatchable sap they themselves were producing right alongside it. “Sirocco” is not even really that minor a star in that universe. Good, good, good.

Where Have I Seen This Scenario?
“Sirocco” takes place in 1925 Damascus where French troops are occupying the city and fighting against rebel insurgents. (Hmmmm…that sounds familiar).

Harry Smith (Humphrey Bogart) and his pal Nasir Aboud (Nick Dennis) are running guns to rebel leader Emir Hassan (Onslow Stevens). French General LaSalle (Everett Sloane) wants “an eye for an eye” after another of his patrols is ambushed. His Head of Intelligence Colonel Feroud (Lee J. Cobb) wants to negotiate with Hassan. He gets the General to agree to send in an emissary, Lt. Collet (Harry Guardino) to meet with the rebels and start peace negotiations.

When Collet is found murdered, Feroud rounds up the usual arms dealer suspects including Smith and forces them to sell their wares to the French. Harry agrees but as a measure of revenge, sets his sights on Violette (Marta Toren) who is Feroud’s lady friend. Harry meets with Hassan’s man to collect his last payment but is told not to return as his “services” are no longer required.

Harry attempts to leave Damascus with Violette but their bus is stopped. Harry escapes and Violette is captured. However, Feroud releases her and gives her a pass out of the city. When an informer Balukjian (Zero Mostel) obtains proof the Harry is supplying arms to the enemy, Harry becomes a wanted man.

Despondent over the loss of Violette, Feroud offers Harry a pass out of Damascus if he will arrange a meeting between himself and Hassan without LaSalle’s knowledge. Feroud realizes that this will certainly result in his death. LaSalle learns of the scheme and implores Harry to arrange for Feroud’s release for $10,000. Harry has plans to leave the city with Violette but reluctantly agrees to undertake the mission.

Together with Major Leon (Gerald Mohr) Harry approaches Hassan’s headquarters and………………………………………

This “film noire” was produced by Bogart’s production company Santana and reminds one somewhat of “Casablanca” (1942). Bogey is somewhat of rogue in this one with few redeeming qualities. Toren makes a good “femme fatale” ultimately destroying the two men that love her. The picture has a dark tone, playing for the most part, as it does, at night in the rain swept streets and damp underground catacombs of 1925 Damascus.

Sloane and Mostel has appeared with Bogey in “The Enforcer” the same year. Cobb would appear with Bogey in “The Left Hand of God” (1955).

Entertaining film, better than some would have you believe.
