Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Hollywood's excursions into Arabian Nights exotica don't come much daffier than Kismet, a 1955 MGM adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. The score includes two standards, "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" and "Stranger in Paradise," but the blend of Broadway razzmatazz and Middle Eastern culture is, to say the least, awkward. (One comic number revolves around a man about to have his hand chopped off for thievery.) There's plenty here for musical fans to enjoy, and a well-cast Howard Keel does his chesty best as an itinerant poet who fast-talks his way to riches; this was Keel's last starring role in an MGM musical. Unfortunately, Vic Damone is a wet rag as the young prince, the garish Eastman Color photography has not aged well, and director Vincente Minnelli seems not entranced by the material. Still, there is something fascinating about Dolores Gray belting out "Baghdad, this irresistible town!" as though singing the praises of Vegas or Monte Carlo. --Robert Horton

From the Back Cover

From opulent palaces to teeming bazaars to lush, moonlit gardens, Kismet is an enchanting fairy tale about a vagabond poet and his beautiful daughter who set the ancient city of Baghdad on its ear. The music includes the famous "Stranger in Paradise," "Baubles, Bangles and Beads" and "This is My Beloved." Howard Keel plays the witty poet-beggar whose quick tongue is forever getting him into trouble-and out again. Masquerading as Hajj, a famous sorcerer with magical powers, he had just the right amount of charm and bravado to fool a wicked Wazir (Sebastian Cabot) and turn a fair lady's head. She's flirtatious Dolores Gray, a wry and worldly woman who also happens to be the Wazir's number one wife. Enchanting complications abound for Ann Blyth and Vic Damone as young star-crossed lovers who are reunited in the film's grand finale. One of the most lavish musicals ever seen on screen, one viewing will seal your fate-it's Kismet!
