First movie of James Callis (Prince Ahmed).
Stories are less simple than we think they are.
Harun al-Rashid was the Caliph of Baghdad, not the Sultan of Cairo.
The VHS version of the movie has omits the most important story in the movie, which is the turning point for the Sultan. It is the story of the sultan who conintually switches places with the beggar until the beggar finally ends up becoming the sultan after the real sultan is killed.
