''Sinbad the Sailor'' is a 1947 Technicolor fantasy-{{swashbuckler}} film from RKO, directed by Richard Wallace, and starring Creator/DouglasFairbanksJr, Creator/MaureenOHara, Creator/AnthonyQuinn, and Walter Slezak. It tells the tale of the "eighth" voyage of Literature/SinbadTheSailor, wherein he discovers the lost treasure of Alexander the Great. The film is notable for its lavish production values, including detailed paintings and models, and for its [[PurpleProse florid pseudo-Arabian dialogue]]. Fairbanks makes an [[BigHam over the top and highly acrobatic]] Sinbad and he looks very fine in his chest-baring shirts and poofy pants. Maureen O'Hara's Shireen is a fine addition to her gallery of haughty princesses and sword-wielding [[PirateGirl pirates]], while Anthony Quinn's Emir Maffi of Daibul is a coldly menacing butcher. George Tobias's Abbu and Walter Slezak's Melik are quirkily amusing. The lush Romantic Hollywood-Arabian score is by Roy Webb.

->''O Masters, O Noble Persons, O Brothers, know you that in the time of the Caliph Harun-Al-Rashid, there lived on the golden shore of Persia a man of adventure called Sinbad the Sailor. Strange and wondrous were the tales told of him and his voyages. But who, shall we surmise, gave him his immortality? Who, more than all other sons of Allah, spread glory to the name of Sinbad? Who else, O Brother, but -- Sinbad the Sailor! Know me, O Brothers, for the truth of my words, and by the ears of the Prophet, every word I have spoken is truth!''

-->Daryabar turns out to be a dreadful place, a barren island surrounded by wrecked ships, but in its center stands a beautiful palace inhabited only by a old man, the Aga (Alan Napier) and a single servant. A sudden attack of conscience causes Sinbad to proclaim his true identity and warn the Aga not to give up his treasure but the gold means nothing to the old man and he calmly reveals the treasure overflowing from the vaults below in the basin of a fountain. Jamal and the Emir promptly turn on each other, giving the Aga an opportunity to rescue Sinbad -- who really ''is'' his son -- and Shireen. Together they retake the ship and kill the Emir with Greek fire.

** Sinbad then goes on [[FramingDevice to tell the tale of his latest voyage to Daryabar,]] and at the end of the movie produces some of the treasures he retrieved from the island, proving that he was indeed telling the truth.

RKO had to scuttle its plan to present this film as a 1946 Christmas-season attraction when a strike at the Technicolor processing plant delayed the making of prints. Needing a black-and-white movie for its 1946 yuletide schedule, RKO chose a film destined to become a holiday perennial: FrankCapra's ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''.
