vintage morocco

The infamous scene [in Morocco] where Marlene Dietrich kisses another woman - which was added to the script at Dietrich’s suggestion - was saved from being cut by the censors by Dietrich herself. She came up with the idea of taking a flower from the woman before kissing her and then giving the flower to Gary Cooper, explaining that if the censors cut the kiss the appearance of the flower would make no sense. 

This was not the only thing that was controversial at the time of release (1930). She also wore a tuxedo designed for a man in this scene.
