Ouch!
28 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I waited over forty years to see this film. It was never licensed for TV broadcast, and after seeing it at the 2013 Capitolfest in Rome, NY, I could understand why. There may have been one or two mild laughs, but otherwise the film was dreadful. As an example, there's a sequence where the protagonists crawl around wearing lion costumes in a cannibal village, but nothing is done to mine any comedy. The film ends up in an Arab palace, with tired running and hiding sight gags. The only interest was seeing some of the props (such as a witch doctor mask) that would periodically turn up in later Universal productions. The film was also released with inter-titles and a music & effects track for foreign distribution. It would have been more interesting to see that version; at least a music track would have helped move this uninspired comedy along.
