The Golden Arrow 06/25/19

The Warner Archive Collection

It’s Tab Hunter as you’ve never seen him before. Antonio Margheriti’s limp but colorful Arabian Nights adventure romance is a real head-scratcher — it’s an entirely generic kiddie show, filmed on nice locations, and devoid of style or flash. Some of the sub-Bava effects are clever, but the only ‘magic’ element is the decision to dub the star Hunter with an off-the-shelf voice artist… it’s as if Tab has been sucked into a ‘scimitar & sandal’ episode of The Twilight Zone. Second viewing pleasure opportunity is the gorgeous Ms. Rossana Podestá. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
