#33 - Son of Sinbad

In this episode Dr. Gangrene takes a look at the 1955 film, Son of Sinbad, a costumed desert epic where Price plays Omar Khayyam, sidekick to Sinbad, legendary adventurer and womanizer. They are arrested when Sinbad tries to sneak into the Khalif's palace to romance his harem girls. They become entangled in a plot to retrieve the secret of Greek Fire, (which is in reality a recipe for making explosives), save the city from invading enemy forces, and save the girl Sinbad has fallen for. A silly plot that fortunately doesn't take itself seriously.


Dr. Gangrene, Physician of Fright and Award-winning Nashville-based TV Horror Host (aka writer/film historian Larry Underwood) explores the films of the merchant of menace, Vincent Price, in chronological order from first to last, approaching them from a scholarly perspective, offering commentary, review and criticism.
