The caliph of Baghdad must go into hiding with a group of traveling performers when his brother usurps the throne. Both brothers desire a beautiful dancing girl, who is torn between power and true love.
I suppose this was the sort of musical that was turned out in their dozens in the 1940s mainly to be the supporting half of a double bill.The fact that it has not even gathered 5 votes means that is rarely seen.I have to say that if you haven't seen this well you haven't missed much.Allen Jones is a pleasant if rather routine leading man.Actually it is interesting to compare him at this time with Dick Powell.There careers were both in the same state at this time but Powell took a gamble and took the lead in "Farewell My Lovely and Jones just headed on to movie obscurity.There is some light,if that is the word ,relief from Andy Devine and Mary Wickes and some pseudo Polynesian tunes.i wont bother to mention the plot
