    This film is sort of a mini-epic, but it's entertaining to see the great Ronald Colman let loose with that wonderful, melodic voice of his in a truly different role for him. Edward Arnold is a pleasure to watch as the corrupt Grand Vizier, and James Craig did a good job as the Caliph. Even Marlene Dietrich turned in a surprisingly decent performance as Jamilla, although her gold-legged dance scene -- made up of a series of shakey and spasmodic moves -- went on way too long and was downright embarassing to watch.

  • Okay film.

  • MGM's "Arabian" Fantasy...

    With the drama of WWII unfolding, Hollywood studios all mounted elaborate 'escapist' fantasies, both for American audiences, and for our soldiers, overseas. "Kismet" was MGM's huge technicolor contribution, with favorites Ronald Colman and Marlene Dietrich as the leads. Both had been offscreen for two years, entertaining troops, and this tale of the 'King of Beggars' wooing a Vizier's consort, in disguise, was certainly intended as grand entertainment rather than an Oscar contender! Colman mugs outrageously, Dietrich's gold-painted legs get more attention than her performance, but the end result is still very entertaining and great fun, with colorful sets, witty dialogue, and a happy ending, of course!

  • Great Show

    I loved Kismet. It's got a fun combination of intrigue, humor and romance with appealing stars and beautiful music, including my personal favorite Stranger in Paradise. Highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys romantic musicals set to an Arabian Nights theme.
