Creator/TerryGilliam's fourth solo directorial effort, from 1988. It's a paean to whimsy and the irrational, and how stories are more important than "what really happened" and rationality.

Creator/TerryGilliam's fourth solo directorial effort, from 1988.1988 (though it didn't get released in the US and UK until a few months later in '89). It's a paean to whimsy and the irrational, and how stories are more important than "what really happened" and rationality.

** The Sultan's "organ" ''might'' just be a ShoutOut to Terry Jones' mouse organ from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', comprising a row of mice, strapped to a board, which ''supposedly'' squeaked musically when hit with hammers. (Both are based on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katzenklavier Katzenklavier]], a conjectural (and thankfully never realized) instrument in which nails would be driven into the tails of a series of different-sized cats in order to play a tune. Or just create an almighty ruckus and be mean to animals along the way. The Sultan's instrument probably owes far more to the [[TheElricSaga Melnibonean]] music form, since both involve torturing slaves.)

* ExactWords: For his part of the wager, the Sultan said that the Baron could take as much of the Sultan's treasure as the strongest man could carry. Unfortunately, the Sultan did not anticipate that the Baron's strongman Albrecht would be able to carry out all of it all at once.

* TreasureRoom: The Sultan's treasury. Of course, after the Baron collected his winnings from his wager with the Sultan, it wasn't so much of a treasure room as it was just a regular room.
