Meet Me In Fawzis!

John Goldfarb - (1965) Directed by J. Lee Thompson;

Shirley Maclaine, Peter Ustinov, Richard Crenna

This film is awful. I love hearing Shirley Maclaine's growl just as much as I enjoy harem belly dancing but this however does not make up for this tragedy. The Arab portrayals would be insulting if they weren't so over-the-top silly and if they weren't confined to just King Fawzis himself, who mutters jibberish in place of a foreign language. Its a wacky movie but not witty, the goofs come across as corny and I read somewhere that this filmed was sued by Notre Dame for associating their football team with this movie.

The Theme Song is awesome though.
