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.Written by
The film was shot in 3D, but by the time it was finally released in 1955, two years after it was completed, wide screen had superseded 3D as the most popular presentation advancement, and so it was converted to Superscope by cropping the top and bottom off the original standard ratio images; however, prints shown on TCM are in uncropped 4:3 ratio, just as originally filmed, even though it bears an RKO Radio Superscope logo.

Sally Forrest's lush legs are wonderfully on display in a dance scene where she appears "Almost Nude!" Yummy. Corny but colorful not-so-serious adventure is enhanced by a dance scene that tends to tip it's hand to strip club dancing (complete with pole!) This segment is not as polished as her dance scene in "Excuse My Dust!" but she shows a lot more skin. Once again: Yummy!
