He planned a coup d'etat, which failed at first, but supported by the wasir he finally succeeds. Haroun is injured and gets help from Ahmad's actor troupe, where he is nursed by Sherazade, who doesn't recognise him. When she hears that Kamar is looking for her she goes to him, but is sold with the complete troupe of actors to slavery. They're able to escape, but Haroun is still in danger. To save him, Sherazade agrees to poison Kamar, but Haroun tries to establish his rulership first. Written by

I do not understand why the video movie pack shows John Hall when really movie 80% begin to Maria Montez and 20% to Sabu. The story (Boardman and Hogan), an inoffensive comedy in the orientalism way from the 40', the same that decorates and costumes. Very caracterist in that Hollywood era. Splendid technicolor and adequate music from Frank Skinner.
