This Sinbad film was mistakenly credited as Simbad when released on VHS. Most copies were re-called from stores and those of us who were able to secure one was lucky to keep this interesting piece of work. The company went bankrupt soon after re-calling the copies available from stores. Hence, it has never been released again.
Returning from a long sea voyage, Sinbad finds himself stripped of his home and possessions by the crazy Caliph who turns out to be his lookalike. he falls in with a pair of rogues whose incompetence leaves all three drugged and sold into slavery on the high seas.
Allah intervenes and they find themselves on the ship bringing the beautiful princess Scheherazade to Baghdad for her wedding to the murderous Caliph. Sinbad immediately falls head-over-heels in love with this Arabian Nights Princess - with disastrous results!.....The adventure has just begun and its up to you to hunt this rare gem to know the rest.
This 1973 version of Sinbad is full of interesting characters that will make you laugh 'till you cry. The plot summary is good and so is the actors and costumes. Worth watching and owning.
Starring Robert Malcolm & Sonia Wilson.
