When Harvey shoots the rifle after the barrel was bent by the candle, there was only one hole in his pith helmet. There should have been two, one for the bullet's entrance and one for its exit. See more »
Abbott & Costello play two inept magicians on tour in the Middle East who somehow get mixed up with a young prince who has been cheated out of his rightful place on the throne by his scheming uncle who has used two magical rings to maintain his power base. The team evades all kinds of obstacles, and go to all kinds of lengths to help out. Marilyn Maxwell plays the leader of the title harem. One of the few films not made at Universal Studios(their main home), but instead MGM. Too bad this unfunny and inept film is one of them, because it is mostly beneath their talents, since their routines don't work so well in this setting, being too forced and outlandish to succeed.
