By the Gods!

 Carmen Sevilla and Ricardo Montalban in DESERT WARRIOR

Great, old fashioned Arabian-style adventure, filmed on location. I did a Fan Dub of this. I'm thinking of uploading it on Youtube (if they allow many restrictions). Montalbano made several films in Europe and his career never really suffered from this, unlike other actors at the time. It was considered a no-no for Hollywood actors to star in 'lesser' grade European films. Even today, this trend is still sorta the same. It's rare to see big Hollywood movie stars, at the height of their careers, in films made in Europe. It happens but not frequently.

I agree fully that this is one of the better Arabian Nights type movies. It takes itself seriously and avoids trying to parody the genre.

Fortunately it even lacks the obnoxious sidekick to the hero who is supposed to be funny.
