Photo of the Day

Vladimir Sokoloff, Sabu and Daria Massey in SABU & THE MAGIC RING

This film is almost considered a lost film. I say "considered" because I've seen a B&W clip from an Italian broadcast of this film on them interwebs which means someone has a copy out there but the short film (it's a little over an hour), which was made in the US and in colour, is basically missing in action. It's amazing that Sabu was still making Arabian adventure films in the late 1950s twenty years after appearing in his first production in 1937. Sabu died young, at 39, in 1963, 6 years after making this.

I've seen a couple Trailers of the movie and I know that on one of my DVDs there is one. I'm almost positive that TCM has shown this movie not too long ago, and they may have it in their collector series. I will try to find out.
