Pasha Ali Nadim (Vincent Price) escorts Princess Marjan (Maureen O'Hara) upon her return to her land in BAGDAD

Maureen plays a Bedouin princess (!) who was educated in England and now returns to her people only to discover that her father was murdered and she tries to find who's responsible. The pale skinned, redhaired Maureen made tons of these films and they are fun to watch even if, like this one, they are wildly improbable. In this screenshot, she seems a tad over-dressed for the desert. It's great to see Vincent Price and Maureen act together. They must have had a lot of fun doing this Technicolor 'Eastern' adventure. Someone called it ' O'Hara of Arabia' which I like.
