Aladdin Italian style
10 July 2012 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

When I was a boy I saw this a bunch of times in the theaters. I've been looking for a good widescreen DVD for years. I've even written to TCM to broadcast it to no avail. In fact it's way too adult for little kids with ample but suggested nudity and hot girls running around in a comic book Italian-style world. Great soundtrack as always by Lavagnino and direction by Bava although Henry Levin gets screen credit. Intense color, the kind not used anymore in this dull digital age. O'Connor was great in this, a departure from his usual yet not a departure, An odd choice for a lead in an Italian fantasy yet he makes it smoke like a genie's lamp. Noelle Adams steals the show, of course.

Can the ten lines of copy be decreased in the future?
