    a technicolor fantasy spectacle with douglas fairbanks jr giving his usual energetic performance in the title role. the sets and costumes here are slightly ridiculous and maureen o'hara doesn't look remotely like a middle eastern princess but it's all in good fun and walter slezak is highly entertaining as the villainous jamal. altho the acting is somewhat better here i miss harryhausen's amazing claymation creatures from the 70's

    another flick based upon the prestigious arabian nights, and this time our swashbucking hero would be douglas fairbanks jr. who resurrects the archetyped glory of the first swashbuckler king douglas fairbanks sr. who ruled hollywood in the prosperous silent period. the tale is a fictional improvisatory tale on the eighth voyage of singbad discovering his royal heritage of gold treasure and an adventurous conquest of a iceberg queen-to-be. the palette of this flick is drenched in vivid colorfulness which transmutes an aura of gaudiness that takes some screen time to adapt into such blistering nuance, and such sharpness is manifested from the constumes of fairbanks toward the artificial blue sky. since it was one of the pioneering attempts of techicolor craftmanship, naturally it had some idiocyncrasy of experimental primitiveness. fairbanks' exhilaratingly dramatic performance also consumes some screen time to get customed into, and at the start his mischievousness borders on being histrionic, then later it emerges toward the surface that it is a swashbuckler flick! certainly all the characters have a particularly peculiar mode to conduct in those stereotyped roles, and fairbanks only enhances that legendariness as some relish, besides his sunny wide smile resminiscence fairbanks sr. who always gives his classic pirate grins. maurean o'hara is ravishing enough to always cast as any role of love interest. about the machurian-looking villain, evil jarmal, is played by german actor walter slezak who is also marvellously insidious in hitchcock's "lifeboat" as nazi. this time, he has a merchurian albony head which resembles ancient crooked chinese, and he still remains riveting in an eccentric role in such absurd scenario and laughable constume. "sinbad the sailor" is only second to conrad veidt's "thief from bagdad" which is so far the best swashbuckler in the backset of arabian nights, and the dashing male beauty of fairbanks jr. would be also eye candy for ladies in such lush old-hollywood production.

    Douglas Fairbanks Jr.'s typically exuberant performance plays wonderfully against Walter Slezak's obsequious villain, and the romance with Maureen O'Hara has real chemistry. Entertaining old school swashbuckling fun.
