Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1943. Revised Draft script for the 1944 film.

The second of Universal's Technicolor fantasy adventures (after "Arabian Nights," 1942, and "White Savage," 1943), loosely based on the classic Arabian Nights tales, with a fitting score by Edward Ward to match Lubin's directorial flair. A fun, but often overlooked, desert romp.
