ahmed peter ustinov producer

(NBC, 11/23/1978, 120 mins). The fourth filming of the Arabian Nights fantasy about a friendly thief who helps a handsome prince overcome an evil wizard to win a beautiful princess and a kingdom. Not to be overlooked in this British-made production, of course, are the inevitable flying carpet and the giant genie in a magic lamp.
