Directed by
Pier Paolo Pasolini

Sabu, Maria Montez, Jon Hall and Leif Erickson star in director John Rawlins' exotic adventure for the Universal studios. Unusually shorn of its magical elements, the narrative, which unfolds in medieval Baghdad, tells of a fierce struggle for power and love between two brothers. They are the rightful caliph Haroun al-Rashid and his teacherous sibling Kamar, who seeks every opportunity to depose Haroun. They are also in direct competition for the affections of the dancing girl Scheherazade, who performs for a travelling circus, whose other members include Sinbad the sailor, Aladdin and the acrobat Ali Ben Ali. First screening on Film4.
