  • Spectacular version of Aladdin!

    My first time seeing this movie, was in the summer of 2007. It is a spectacular version of the beloved movie Aladdin. And actually at the time, wasn't even aware that there was, other than the Disney one. Was very pleasantly surprised. The cast and costumes are just superb! Love how the man that played Abdulla was dressed. In terms of wardrobe, I was very impressed. It was very fresh and contemporary for a movie made in 1945. It made this movie seem quite ahead of its time. A real wow factor. This movie is a must see. I just love it! Can't wait to take this home on DVD. Please cast your vote for this one. It's well worth it.

"A Thousand and One Nights" (1945) is a lavish camp classic in Technicolor. Cornel Wilde is excellent as Aladdin, and comedian Phil Silvers is very funny with his 1940s wisecracks. Aladdin hopes to marry Princess Armina, with the help of a sassy female genie named Babs. The costumes are gorgeous. The castle sets with elaborate gates and balconies are impressive. Some outdoor scenes were filmed at Vasquez Rocks, a natural area park in California. There is also a dramatic sword fight, a creepy giant, chases on horseback, a tailor with six red-haired seamstresses, and Arabian dancers. Vote for the DVD!

  • Visually spectacular and witty Arabian Nights!

    "A Thousand and One Nights" (1945) is a fun, campy version of Arabian Nights. It is a visually dazzling Technicolor film, with extravagant costumes and sets, and witty dialog. Aladdin (played by Cornel Wilde) falls in love with blonde Princess Armina. Aladdin's friend is Abdullah, played by comedian Phil Silvers, who makes a lot of witty, 1940s slang wisecracks. Aladdin finds a red-haired female genie named Babs to help him marry Princess Armina. Aladdin and Abdullah have many adventures in this film. There is a cute dog, a sinister giant in a cave, chases on horseback at the Vasquez Rocks, and exotic Arabian dancers. Cornel Wilde's sword fight is dramatic. Princess Armina and her beautiful handmaidens wear glittering colorful gowns, and the sets are lavish. The film received Oscar nominations for Best Art Direction and Best Special Effects. I hope a DVD is released soon.
