Maroc 7 is a 1967 British thriller film directed by Gerry O'Hara and starring Gene Barry, Cyd Charisse, Elsa Martinelli, Leslie Phillips, Denholm Elliott, Alexandra Stewart.
The Plot: Louise Henderson (Charisse) is the editor of a respected fashion magazine, but she has a hidden career as mastermind of a ring of thieves. With their professional operation as a front, Louise uses one of her models, Claudia (Martinelli), and a photographer, Raymond Lowe (Phillips), to steal precious artifacts and jewels.
Law enforcement agencies have their suspicions about her, so undercover man Simon Grant (Barry) is assigned the case. He pretends to be a safe-cracker to infiltrate Louise's gang, traveling to Morocco, where she intends to switch an imitation Arabian medallion for a priceless real one.
Grant is given cooperation in Morocco by a chief of police, Inspector Barrada (Elliott), and a woman named Michelle Craig (Stewart) who is the chief's top aide. Things go wrong when Grant needs to kill Lowe, who has followed him on his way to find the map to the location of the medallion.
The theft goes on as planned, at least until Claudia dies while trying to take the medallion from Grant. To the surprise of cops and robbers alike, the precious medallion is stolen by the one person none of them suspected.
