Photo of the Day

The dancers of Kadeejah in THIEF OF BAGHDAD (1961)

These are the dancers when Steve Reeves meet Kadeejah played by Edy Vessel. Their costumes look different in this publicity photo as to how they look like in the final film. I much prefer this look than the Circus-like colors in the film. I always wondered what the set was supposed to represent. It looks cold, like icicles dangling, but the story takes place in a warm desert environment. Hmm...

I purposely put the movie on to check it out and the scene is all together different. My transfer is from a Pan & Scan VHS so can't really see everything wish that this movie was released on DVD in Widescreen in order to really enjoy the full scope of this movie. I think they are the same dancers that are in the movie.
