I saw this film at a children's Saturday morning matinée in 1958. I was bowled over by it, and have tried to find it, but it has never resurfaced. The basic story is the usual tale of Arabian Nights princess escapes a wicked Vizier, is saved by a good looking lad and it all ends well. It has never appeared on video - even though the voice of the young Julie Andrews would surely be guarantee of a decent sale if only out of curiosity. Is the film lost, I wonder? Julie Andrews was a child prodigy, and at the time this film was made was doing the rounds of the music halls which were then in the process of dying away in the face of competition from films and (eventually) television. Her singing and acting were marvelous - although she must only have been about 12 at the time.
