EmanuelLevy.Com - 8/10 by Emanuel LevyMinnelli's weakest musical, with few redeeming qualities
Video-Reviewmaster.com - 7/10 by Steve CrumColorful yet lackluster MGM musical spectacular.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 6/10 by Dennis SchwartzThe heavy-handed glittering Arabian Nights musical is a great watch visually, but unfortunately the storytelling is uninspiring.
Movie Metropolis - 5/10 by John J. Puccio...the stage play went to the screen for Minnelli to direct. However, somewhere in the translation, something got lost.
User Review - 10/10 by Johnny NGlorious colourful meaningless musical that none of you will enjoy.

User Review - 6/10 by Jonathan BIt is the music that saves this movie from being a complete disaster as the dialogue is lack-lustre and wooden, declaimed without feeling by a cast who should know better. Even though it is a musical, there's no excuse for lines to be delivered with such little feeling. The setting is lavish and colourful, exactly what you'd expect from a 1950s Hollywood vision of old Baghdad. With tunes based on the music of Borodin's opera "Prince Igor" and other themes there are some big-hitter songs such as "Stranger in Paradise", "Baubles, Bangles and Beads" and "This is My Beloved". Howard Keel is somewhat charmless in the lead role as quick-thinking poet who's run of good luck and fortune leads those around him to believe he's a wizard with magical powers. His daughter, Ann Blyth unknowingly falls for the local Caliph Vic Damone to provide the necessary, squeaky clean and wholesome love interest while it is Sebastian Cabot as the scheming, underhand Wazir and his vampish wife, played by the all lips and legs Delores Gray, that actually steal this movie. This is not one of Vincente Minnelli's finest films and it did somewhat bomb at the box office, perhaps because there had already been several versions of this same story (one starring Marlene Dietrich) in the past. Today it appears gaudy, over-exposed and not terribly politically correct. It doesn't really do the musical genre many favours and is probably one for diehard fans only.
User Review - 6/10 by Michael TVincente Minnelli's indifferent direction mars this Arabian Knights musical adapted from the stage hit; the score (based on Borodin's music) is still quite lovely, including song hits such as "Stranger in Paradise," "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," and "Not Since Ninevah."
User Review - 6/10 by Richard DLively sound-stage musical version of the Middle-Eastern story with a very familiar production style for films of this type from this era.
User Review - 6/10 by Gregory Wlavish and gorgous to look at this is the 4 th version of this & MGM pulls out all the stops on this technicolor spectacular.
