Tongue-in-cheek fantasy film set in Baghdad and loosely based on the One Thousand and One Nights medieval story.
The hero is introduced several times as "Aladdin of Cathay" referring to Marco Polo's name for (Northern) China. In the original Arabian Nights tale, Aladdin is a Chinese lad and his adventure takes place in a rather Arabian-seeming China. No attempt is made to make Cornel Wilde look Chinese.
