On Friday, July 23rd, TCM is presenting a marathon of Arabian Nights classics that members of All Sci-Fi should set there DVRs to record! Very Happy

This adventured-filled day begins at 9:15 am EST with The Thief of Bagdad (1940), a special effects laden classic that was a favorite of Forrest Ackerman's which he frequently featured in Famous Monsters of Filmland.

At 1:00 pm EST we're treated to The Golden Arrow (1962), which TCM describes as "Tab Hunter runs risks and flies carpets in old Damascus. The "thin genie" is played by Umberto Melanti."

Sounds kinda fun, eh? If you can't DVR this movie, here it is on YouTube. Smile

At 2:45 pm EST we can watch Sinbad the Sailor (1947), in which the charming Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and the lovely Maureen O'Hara create all the romance (but none of the monsters) we got in Harryhausen's classic.

But this trailer, narrated by Art Gilmore, is absolutely gorgeous!

Beginning at 4:45 pm we're treated to Howard Hugh's enjoyable display of the most lovely ladies in one movie in Hollywood history! Son of Sinbad (1955) features Dale Robinson as a charming gal-chasing Arabian hero, and Vincent Prince as his funny sidekick (a wonderful performance by Prince), as they enlist the aid of the all-female offspring of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves.

IMDB says, "The movie features 127 gorgeous young starlets, all dressed in outrageously provocative harem girl outfits."

It also says that the censors held up this movie's release for several years because of " . . . dance scenes that were deemed unacceptable by the censors."

This is the dance in question, with the gorgeous Sally Forrest doing a literal "pole dance". Behold, infidel!

It was originally filmed in 3D, but never released in that format. Sad

Then at 6:30 pm EST we can enjoy Captain Sinbad (1963), with Guy Williams (Disney's Zorro and Irwin Allen's John Robinson on Lost In Space.

This colorful adventures was filmed in Germany and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. When it came out, the movie was heavily promoted, including a well-illustrated comic book I owned which had me eager to see this movie! Cool

Alas, it's certainly no 7th Voyage of Sinbad, so please adjust your exceptions. Howver, the flashy trailer is narrated by he great Art Gilmore.
Very Happy

I've urged All Sci-Fi's Live Chat (<— link) members to DVR these events so we can share them on future Wednesday Adventure Chats.

Our friendly group has been growing recently!

Last Saturday when we watched King Kong (1933) the members in attendance were Trekriffic, Gord, BigCatNick, Phantom, and yours truly, Bud Brewster! Cool

If you can get Turner Classic Movies, please set your DVR for the movies above and save them for our future Wednesday Adventure Chats. The link below will always include our schedule for the chat features, both on Wednesdays and Saturdays.


FYI: The Classic Horror Film Board now has chats on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays — and they rarely have fewer than 10 members in attendance! Shocked

Come on, guys! It they can do THAT, we can do much better than two chats a week with just five members! Sad

Help us out here, folks! Confused

I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. Only way to be sure.
