Classic Film With Great Actors!
22 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have not seen this film in years and decided to look at all the great Classic actors who were all very young and at the height of their careers! Douglas Fairbanks,Jr.(Sinbad),"Red & Blue",'67, played an excellent Sinbad and followed in his fathers footsteps, Fairbanks Senior. Maureen O'Hara,(Shireen),"Big Jake",'71, was beautiful and put her heart and soul into her role as a captured lady among savages on old sailing vessels. Walter Slezak,(Melik),"Black Beauty",'71, played a crafty old fox who was able to find treasure that no one ever thought he was capable of finding. Anthony Quinn(Emir),"Last Action Hero",'93 kept after Sinbad and tried to capture the heart strings of Shireen and plenty of wealth! Great Classic film to enjoy, the background scenery is very typical 1947!
