A Whole New World

The Magic Carpet (Columbia, 1951)

Cornel Wilde and Debra Paget in Omar Khayyam (Columbia, 1957)

Paulette Goddard and Richard Ney in Babes in Baghdad (United Artists, 1952)

Howard Keel and Dolores Gray in Kismet (MGM, 1955)

Son of Sinbad (RKO, 1955)

Shining, shimmering, splendid.


  1. Baghdad, Jeannie's (portrayed by Barbara Eden) home town! If Tony Nelson acquired her after 1990, he'd lose his clearance and astronaut wings. says of "Kismet" (another movie from back in the days when Baghdad was a fun place for tourists), "I’m not sure how many blondes in gold tights were wandering around ancient Baghdad, but no one ever claimed this movie was the least bit realistic."

  2. Who knew Sinbad's kid was a backdoor man?
