A deposed prince and a crafty pickpocket join forces to fight an evil vizier and reclaim the throne, and the love of a beautiful princess. Along the way, there’s a djinn in a bottle, a mechanical horse, a giant spider, and a flying carpet, conjured up by the power of magic and imagination.
Stories from the Arabian Nights are brought to life by terrific Technicolor, spectacular special effects and grand set pieces. “Often hailed as the greatest fantasy film ever made, this was producer Alexander Korda’s crowning achievement.” Critic Roger Ebert calls it “one of the great entertainments. It lifts up the heart.”
Winner of 3 Academy Awards, for best cinematography, art direction and special effects, and also nominated for best music.
