Storyline

Sinbad was pursuing a secret weapon: Greek Fire. Attributed to the ancient Greeks, it was composed of pitch or bitumen, sulfur, and other ingredients. It was used in naval warfare and the Romans also made use of it but with the fall of the ancient Western world, it was temporarily forgotten, but it was rediscovered by the Arabs from whom European Crusaders also learned the method of making it.

Trivia

According to the TCM Archives, Son of Sinbad received several re-edits to remove dance scenes that were deemed unacceptable by the censors. PCA director Joseph I. Breen declared the film "unacceptable" by "reason of indecent dance movements and too scanty costuming," The original opening credits featured a dance that was removed, and other dance scenes were shortened, although this is hard to believe in view of the fact that the dances which remain are surprisingly long and remarkably suggestive, even by today's standards.

Getting Howard's end in.
22 March 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Awesome booberama classic from RKO's master breast man, Howard Hughes, this 3D (cup?) extravaganza is a must see for anyone keen for desert showgirl antics and scantily clad harem chases....every stripper and burlesque queen in the greater LA area must have got a gig on this notorious Technicolor romp. In 3D it would have knocked BOTH your eyes out (to paraphrase THE FRENCH LINE's Jane Russell promo). Famous for it's censorship wrangles and delayed release, SON OF SINBAD is like a kids film made for dirty old men..in fact that is exactly what it is......Vincent Price plays the whole thing like he is really Eve Arden.

The corridor of boobs in the last reel must have been a 3D wet dream. Poor old RKO was reduced to being a craftsmanship studio making (now funny) trash by this stage and barely made any films in this period that have lasted because of quality.

Probably only SLIGHTLY SCARLET is their best film of this time; this is at the other end of the scale ....or maybe the gusset of the assembly line.
