Baroud is a 1932 British-French adventure film directed by Rex Ingram and Alice Terry and starring Felipe Montes, Rosita Garcia, and Pierre Batcheff. Actor Paul Henreid debuted in a small role. The film was released in separate French and English-language versions, the latter sometimes known by the title Love in Morocco. [1]


It was the final film of Ingram, a leading Hollywood director of the silent era, and the last film appearance by Alice Terry, a leading Hollywood star of the silent era and Ingram's wife. The title is the Berber word for war.


It is set in French Morocco. Two soldiers in the Spahis, one a Frenchman and the other the son of a chief allied to the French, are friends, but quarrel when the Frenchman becomes romantically involved with the other's sister. They join forces again to repulse an attack by a hostile tribe.
