Silly B-movie stars Maria Montez as the exotic lass who charms the coffers off the famous thief of Araby. Ali Baba was a young orphan escaping an evil prince, raised by thieves living in a hidden cave and now ready to lead his men towards helping avenge his past and save his people…or something like that. It’s charming, fun and features some great crowd fight scene, plus Montez dances a little.
