After being released from his bottle by Harold Ventimore, the genie Fakrash commits himself to improving his new master's life. The only problem is that instead of helping Harold, Fakrash tends to get his master into more predicaments than he gets him out of.Written by
Ventimore's closing to Fakrash, "What we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly and it has little value" is a paraphrase of Thomas Paine, who said "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated." in "The (American) Crisis", a pamphlet that he might have read as a schoolboy studying American revolution history. It is more famous for the phrase, "These are the times that try men's souls". See more »
Since there is a clear gap between the elephant calf and the parked cars, why can the traffic cops simply drive their motorcycles around it and continue pursuing Harold and the genie?
The purpose of the elephants was to distract the police, not build a fence. See more »

I remember seeing this on an afternoon movie show as a kid and loved it. For a movie of its age, it actually had some decent special effects (however, maybe if I saw it today, it wouldn't be as good as we are spoiled by all the computer generated stuff they can do now).
I loved I Dream of Jeannie, and was familiar with that show before I saw this movie. It was odd seeing Barbara Eden in the non-genie role.
The scene that stands out is when Burl Ives has no effect on some girl genie and shoots all these sparks out of his hands at her (am I dreaming this??). Or when he shrinks some business men and they are floating in a glass or pitcher or something and hanging on to a pencil (that sounds weird, and maybe I'm getting senile in my old age, but that's what I remember! :) ).
