Stand tall
16 July 2009 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Arabian princess (redhead Maureen O'Hara indeed!) wants to avenge her father's death. He was killed by the Black Robes whose leader is unknown. She asks the Pasha (Vincent Price) for help and offers in turn to sing for him. I didn't like the singing as much as he did, apparently, but my favorite moment of the movie is when she fails to lure the main suspect Hassan (Swiss born Paul Hubschmid of "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" fame) into a trap. Vincent Price looks at her and says: "You're angry and annoyed. This gives rise to a very interesting question. Is it due to your unsatisfied desire for revenge on a blood-enemy, or only injured vanity because a man's instinct for danger blinded him to your undeniable charms?" Price could deliver mocking lines like that deliciously, it is always a pleasure to watch him. Anyhow, Paul Hubschmid stands tall (one head taller than everyone else except Price, that is) and claims his innocence. A trial in front of the tribes' leaders shall decide about that...

An Oriental fantasy film in glorious Technicolor that celebrates every blue, red and green the camera can get hold of. "Bagdad" doesn't look real for a second with those carnival costumes and false beards, but it was fun all the way to me - 80 minutes is just the right length for a not-so-serious adventure.
