If the genie can see into the future to see stock prices, why can he not see the consequences of his own actions and the trouble he will and them both in with the Securities and Exchange Commission for his own dealings on the stock markets? See more »
Every time I hear his name, I see him in that silly beret with that silly beard painting those silly pictures.

I was a child when I last saw this film, probably on television ... remember it as being incredibly funny and charming and would really enjoy seeing it again!
Burl Ives was a perfect genie ... can still recall the name of the great Fakrash el-Aamash after forty years, which is to say that the film made a remarkable impression. It would be interesting to see whether my sense of humor has changed all that much in the interim.
The Brass Bottle seemed quite a bit better than the TV series "I Dream of Jeannie" that was inspired by it ... absolutely delightful, if my memory can be a reliable guide.
