In 13th-century Tangiers, regent Mustapha covets the Caliphate's throne. Baby Prince Hussein is next in line to the throne but he is too young to rule. An envious and ambitious regent, Mustapha hires a paid assassin to kill the infant king, leaving Mustapha free to rule the Caliphate as he pleases. On the night of the planed murder, the paid assassin, master thief Yussef, enters the chambers of the baby Prince ready to strike his deadly blow. However, Yussef is impressed by the child's innocent gaze and decides to steal the infant Prince. Yussef lies to Mustapha the baby is dead but in fact the baby is safely in Yussef's home. Yussef raises the baby as his own and teaches the young boy to be one of the best thieves in Tangiers. Nevertheless, having a deposed prince with many powerful enemies for a son could be dangerous.

This was made by Universal as part of the grooming process aimed at turning Tony Curtis from contract player into a star ,allowing him to build up an audience over the years.It is just as well he was a busy actor and other product came along to obscure just how very bad this is. Curtis is the eponymous Prince ;earmarked for assassination while still a baby he is spared by the soft hearted would be assassin who raises him as his own son As an adult Curtis becomes involved in a nonsensical plot to recover a priceless pearl and in so doing rescue his native city from attack by heartless enemies.Along the way he falls in love with the scheming princess ,not noticing the vivacious Tina (Piper Laurie )until it is almost too late
Insultingly slipshod in every respect -poor acting ,garish colour ,weak sets etc .This is juvenile and unengaging and wastes everybody's time in watching and the talents of those who made it.
