[pulls Shireen to his side]

Sinbad: No! For a danik she'll sell me to Satan... and you'll split your tongue trying to be the Prince of Dariabar. Can you name the day of the moon and the moon of the year when that medallion was first put upon me by father? Can you name the father's father of my father's father? Can you call to memory the hundred ancestors of my mother? Have you the blue eyes of the Ahmed? Have you a scar underneath your thirteenth rib?
Emir: No, but I...

Facts about

RKO had to scuttle its plan to present this film as a 1946 Christmas-season attraction when a strike at the Technicolor processing plant delayed the making of prints. The wide-release date would be moved up to January 13, 1947, with the Manhattan opening at the Palace Theatre following on January 22, 1947. Needing a black-and-white movie for its 1946 yuletide schedule, RKO chose a film destined to become a holiday perennial: Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life.
"The Hedda Hopper Show - This Is Hollywood" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on March 29, 1947 with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Maureen O'Hara reprising their film roles.
