Trivia

According to his diaries the role of Khasim was originally intended for Kenneth Williams. He ostensibly turned down the part to avoid having to wear a turban (as he had in Carry On... Up the Khyber (1968), to his displeasure). See more »

Solid children's film.
7 April 2008 | by (The San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

I saw this many years ago when it was first released, and though I thought the SFX were dated even for its time, I still enjoyed the film as a whole. The score was above average for a film like this, and the acting was respectably comic for the genre; kids'-adventure.

Some familiar faces make their appearance; Ratzenbergger (Cliff from "Cheers"), legend Christopher Lee, Mickey Rooney, Emma Sams and more, adding an amusing and delightful bit of levity to the film.

All in all it's an okay film for kids, but today's young ones may get somewhat impatient with some dated effects--notably some of the process shots and miniature work.

Still, if I had a copy on DVD I'd most certainly add it to my collection. It's worth taking a look at with your kids on a rainy afternoon or lazy Sunday.

Enjoy :-)
