The sterling adventures of Sinbad as a sailing man and as a romancer are garbed in brilliant color in this RKO production.

Cast values match production elegance. Douglas Fairbanks Jr matches do-and-dare antics of his father. He measures up to the flamboyance required to make Sinbad a dashing fictional hero. Maureen O’Hara lends shapely presence as the heroine.

Story concerns Sinbad’s mythical eighth adventure wherein he seeks a fabulously rich island and the love of an Arabian Nights beauty. Major production fault is that dialog and main story points are obscure, making intelligent following of plot difficult. Principal opponents to Sinbad’s search are Walter Slezak and Anthony Quinn. Former’s character is never clearly explained, and latter’s role also is obscured in the writing.
