The Wonders of Aladdin (1961)


 Mario Bava, Henry Levin


 Luther Davis, Franco Prosperi


 Donald O'Connor, Noëlle Adam, Vittorio De Sica
Aladdin (Donald O'Connor) is a poor young man living in ancient Bagdad, who is given to flights of imagination, and taken with tales of the wealthy and powerful -- in many ways, he's still a boy, and so caught up in his daydreaming that he doesn't realize how his one-time childhood playmate Djalma (Noelle Adam), now a grown young woman, loves him (even if her merchant father thinks he's a worthless loafer). In a moment of indulgence, his mother buys Aladdin an old lamp so that he can have light at night "like a rich man." He accidentally discovers that the lamp contains a genie (Vittorio De Sica), who will grant him three wishes -- but he is so scatterbrained, that he can't figure out exactly how he called the genie in the first place. Aladdin and Djalma both end up headed for Basra and the wedding of the young Prince Malouk (Mario Girotti) to the princess (Michele Mercier), and both are caught up in the plans of the evil Grand Vizier (Fausto Tozzi) to kill the prince and marry the princess himself. Those plans, helped by a malevolent old magician (Raymond Bussieres), include the use of two full-size magical dolls, one a dancing wonder and the other with a deadly embrace. And only Aladdin and his genie, and the brave young prince, can stand in his way.

    Fun Childhood Nostalgia

    Posted by Alexander Michael Oleksij on Oct 13th 2020

    This was a favorite of my childhood when it used to be shown fairly frequently on a local station. Delightful to be able to see it on a nice clean, crisp DVD. Also to discover it is just as good as I remember it.

    I am glad that this item was finally shipped. The copy is not bad - appears to be a transfer from the VHS, but picture and sound were fine. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
