Great movie
20 December 2003 | by edwardhardySee all my reviews

I remember this movie well from when I was little--I saw it many times. I can still remember the king screwing up the joke the grand vizier told, and the "sweetums lay your ugly head" song is still memorable. I haven't seen the film in probably 15 years now. Does anyone know where one could get a copy of this classic?
