Sinbad and the Caliph of Bagdad (1973)
Original title: Simbad e il Califfo di Bagdad
Arabian fantasy/Comedy (?). Italy. Starring Robert Malcolm, Sonia Wilson & Luigi Bonos. Directed by Pietro Francisci.
Premium Video (Holland). English dubbed. Fullscreen.
Arabian fantasy flop from the director of the first two Hercules-films with Steve Reeves, gigantic hits at their time. It's a cheaply made and often boring film in which you're not always sure whether the comedy is intentional or not. This and the sci-fi flop Star Pilot (underrestimated in my opinion) effectively killed Francisci's career... 2/5
