Goofs

In the new footage of Old King Cole's court it's very easy to tell that it is not Virginia Hunter playing Princess Alisha. Wanda Perry has a completely different hair style, and hides her face with a fan. See more »

Great remake, even better than the original
9 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was very good for a remake. I'd say this is the second best remake from the 1953-1956 period. This one gets rid of the stooges playing their fiddles in the beginning and replaces it with a scene in which the stooges propose to their sweethearts and the new footage in the castle is done better than in the original. From there until the new ending it is old footage. But after the magician's box scene in the old footage, it is new footage in which the stooges have a hilarious swordfight with Mergatroyd and his two guards. The new ending is also better than the original's ending. This is better than the original and I highly recommend this one.

Grade: B+
