Sinbad (Dale Robertson), son of Sinbad the Sailor, is a womanizer who always gets into trouble for his affairs, and now that he has broken into the harem of the Khalif of Bagdad (Leon Askin), he and his sidekick, the poet Omar (Vincent Price) are thrown into the dungeon and convicted to a beheading. Bagdad is under siege by the Mongols though, and only Simon the Greek (Robert Greenleaf) could drive away the attackers with his invention, the Greek Fire (~ early bomb), a secret that is well hidden in his daughter Kristina's (Mari Blanchard) brain and accessible only via hypnosis. This is good for Sinbad inasmuch as Kristina's in love with him, and she agrees to cooperate only if Sinbad and Omar are set free. Then though Kristina is kindapped by Murad (Ian MacDonald), her father is killed, and Sinbad somehow persuades the Khalif to let him and Omar go free her.

Against all odds, Sinbad and Omar actually manage to free Kristina, then hook up with the daughters of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, who still live in their fathers' old cave and continue their tradition - but they are completely starved for men, especially since they are not allowed in Bagdad or any other city anymore. And somehow, with the help of the girls and the secret of the Greek fire they managed to hypnotize out of Kristina just in time, Sinbad and Omar defeat Murad and his men and chase away the Mongol hordes. Then they return to Bagdad in triumph, where ... Omar gets Kristina, while Sinbad gets a slavegirl/Ali Baba's thief (Sally Forrest) who has been in love with him all along.


A little Arabian Nights-style adventure romp you just must not take seriously, because it wasn't meant to be. This is more of a genre farce where a good portion of humourous dialogues and funny performances make up for the relative lack of action and sexy girls doing seductive dances  mast the relative lack of budget. The outcome is a lightweight comedy that's highly enjoyable though - but only as long as you don't take it seriously.
