Photo of the Day

The magic carpet chase scene from ARABIAN ADVENTURE (1979)

Conceptually speaking, this scene is quite amazing and elaborate. The execution might be wobbly at times but I appreciate the idea behind it. With a bigger budget a scene like this would be truly awesome. Directed by Kevin Connor who also directed one of my favourite films of the 1970s, AT THE EARTH'S CORE. This is not as good fun as that film but it's enjoyable from time to time, including this scene. I wonder if the monkey in this film was the same monkey used in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.
