Like some other movie stars whose careers were on the decline, Tab Hunter went to Europe in the '60s and made some spaghetti westerns and this Arabian Nights fantasy. When I was a kid, movies like this (except better ones) were a matinee staple, so I thought I'd give The Golden Arrow a try. Unfortunately, the movie was pretty dire.
Tab Hunter is the prince who is a thief. He doesn't know his true origin, but it turns out that he can bend the bow that shoots the golden arrow, which makes him the true heir to the throne of Damascus. He falls for Rossana Podesta, a princess, who's of course about to be given in marriage to someone else by the evil Grand Vizer. There's always an evil Grand Vizer in these movies.
Tab can't let this marriage happen, but he's been chased far away, and he'll have to get back to her somehow. He's aided in his travels by three supposedly comic genies, and his various encounters make very little sense. Not that it matters. This movie was obviously intended for kids who wouldn't care about that kind of thing.
The sets and scenery are great, so the movie had a nice budget. Tab's voice is dubbed for some reason. Maybe the Italians didn't like his line readings. If you're desperate for something to watch, the entire movie is available on YouTube. I can't imagine anyone being that desperate, however.
