Arabian Adventure (1979)

Association Film Distribution
Directed by Kevin Connor
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, StudioCanal)

Evil caliph Christopher Lee seeks more power from a talisman, and offers his daughter in marriage to a visiting prince if he can retrieve it. The prince gets help from a young boy who luckily has a three wishes from a genie to save them when things get tough. There are flying carpets, dragons and other Arabian adventure cliches, poorly portrayed with dated special effects. Sounds like a lot of fun, but somehow manages to be boring. Peter Cushing briefly appears as a beggar, and might be the highlight of the film.
