Goofs

At the beginning of the movie Kazah the Great performs a trick where he makes a girl vanish from a box. After he places her in the box, he tips it over to show she's gone. Watch toward the back edge of the box and the girl's fingertips will briefly appear above the edge of the box, showing she is still lying there behind the now-tilted box. See more »

Siren Of Baghdad Is A Welcome Treat!
13 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie on TMC by accident, and I'm glad I did. Filmed in a time when movies steered towards the dramatic, seeing Paul Henreid in this role was refreshing, and probably something he wanted to do to spice up his versatility as an actor. As soon as I saw Hans Conreid as his sidekick Ben Ali I knew this movie would be great fun, and I stayed for the duration. Very campy but this is the kind of movie to enjoy and not take seriously (despite my jealousy over those beautiful dancing girls). Of all the sand and sandal movies I have seen, this one is definitely my favorite. I highly recommend it to all, but right now I have to catch my crosstown camel!
