An incompetent genie tries to straighten our things in old Baghdad by stopping a wicked sultan who tries to take over the throne and keep the prince and princess from assuming their rightful places. Presented in 4:3 pan and scan using the highest quality source material available.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it....another one from the old days .... June 24, 2013
Format:DVD
Love all the Ali Baba, Sinbad movies from the 50-60's. But i dont remember this one.
Now, when you have the Genie opening up the movie with a song which was pretty
good, it showed me a real entertainer..even if the movie was'nt one on par with
other genie movies...its still good for what it is.
Good story, good costumes...pretty good acting and some comedy made me give this
little gem a thumbs up.
It was really a 3 star movie...but hey the Genie can sing....!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy fun May 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this on endless re-runs on TV and loved it as a kid. Even though I find it a lot cheesier now, it's still fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven mix of comedy and drama January 19, 2014
Format:DVD
Irresponsible genie loses his position and turns mortal until he can make good. He eventually gets the court wizard's position in order to ensure that the true heirs take the throne of Bagdad, but his efforts create a comedy of errors before he finally comes though in the end. This vehicle for up and coming Dick Shawn should have been played more broadly by everyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Put the Blame On Me January 16, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been putting off writing this review since seeing "The Wizard of Baghdad" yesterday as I completely taken aback by the ineptness of this feature film from 20th Century-Fox Cinema Archives (yes, a Cinemascope picture given the pan and scan treatment again) from 1960 (not all that long ago). Sam Katzman was the producer, a guy who specialized in teen movie monsters and some rock and roll movies like movies for Elvis like "Harum Scarum" where they probably got a lot of the costumes from this epic he made five years earlier and the similarly inept "Get Yourself a College Girl" where Chad Everett's music publisher's office had a few pieces of sheet music tacked on the wall of a room with a desk in it. At least they had the jump on Universal who in 1964 released "The Brass Bottle" about a troublesome genie starring bigger talent like Tony Randall, Barbara Eden (later everyone's favorite genie "Jeanie" and a lot funnier. Wonder where they got the idea?) and Burl Ives as the genie. Well, "Wizard of Baghdad" starred Dick Shawn as the troublesome genie in old Baghdad who likes the taste of drink and gets most of his help from his horse that can talk. Wonder if "Mr. Ed" creators saw this film or did they both see the "Francis the Talking Horse" films from the forties? Well, no one really knew that Dick Shawn was not really funny enough to star in a movie before. But wait, this picture also had as the lovers, a young beautiful Diane Baker who deservedly went on to better things and Barry Coe, getting to be a staple on the Fox lot after playing "Rodney Harrington" in their acclaimed film version of the blockbuster "Peyton Place." The hapless director was George Sherman from a screenplay by Jesse I. Lasky, Jr. and Pat Silver based on a story by Samuel Newman. Read more ›
