Scenes from THE THIEF OF BAGHDAD (1961)

Two scenes with matte paintings. Both are pretty subtle in that one thinks 'Is it really matte paintings?' but they are. The one below is very simple: everything above is a painting. It's a very simple one but needed if there were buildings or other objects in the background that had to be hidden. Tom Howard is credited for 'special photographic effects' but it doesn't say if that included matte work.
