Performers, Cast and Crew:
Exhumed from the vaults for all to see, this British musical, which tells the story of Ali Baba, hails from 1934. The film has suffered from some severe cuts in the editing room in the past, with British viewers enjoying a version that was over 20 minutes longer than the American theatrical release. Fortunately that has all been remedied here, with both version available for viewers to peruse. The original stage production enjoyed a magnificent run at His Majesty's Theatre, with a cast that included George Robey, Anna May Wong, and Fritz Kortner, all of whom feature here.
