Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Abbott and Costello are way out east as two prop men with a travelling show touring a desert kingdom. Thrown in jail along with the show's star Marilyn Maxwell, they are freed by dispossessed prince John Conte to help him recapture his lost kingdom. This is well up to standard for the boys and there's good value from Douglass Dumbrille as the villainous Sultan Nimativ - the funnier routines involve his hypnotic rings.
