Fourth reworking of the classic Grace Miller White novel, this time updated to the 60s, with young Scottish lassie Tess (Diane Baker) becoming embroiled in a conflict about a toxic chemical... See full summary »
I happened on this film simply because the TV was on and the FMC channel on cable happened to be showing it this one Sunday. The credits scene was of Dick Shawn riding on a magic carpet singing the intro song. I was intrigued. The previous review is right on point, I can only add that this appears to have been a vehicle for Dick Shawn and is really not much more notable otherwise. It has that pastel look of "The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T" or "Forbidden Planet", and is simply typical of that era. One interesting line is that in the first ten minutes of the film Shawn has an audience with William Edmonson ("Asmodeus", King of the Genies) through a looking glass, Edmonson remarks that "...Baghdad will become the center of the World!" How prophetic film can be in 1960.
