Bad Script, Bad Acting, Horrible Casting, Cool Costumes
Maureen O'Hara is not Iraqi and Vincent Price is not Turkish. Unfortunately, this film is based on the assumption that the viewer will believe that they are. The considerable talents of these two actors were wasted on a half-baked period piece with virtually no plot. Those small remnants of a story that existed were rather hard to follow. The only saving graces of this film are its luscious costumes and scenery, and they aren't nearly good enough to make the film worth sitting through.
