Babes in Bagdad (1952)

The 1950s were much simpler times... we needn't be bothered to check the spelling of the movie's title. It's not like those folks way on the other side of the world would ever know and care, right? If you were ever wondering how we got messed up in the Middle East, I suspect it had as much to do with our blatant disregard for other cultures and peoples and places than it did with weapons of mass destruction.

Anyhoo, it was 1952 so let's pretend they're the Babes of Bagdad, Arizona, telling the story of a progressive harem standing up for their equal rights with the support of Paulette Goddard as an Arabian Nights princess. She teams up with the Caliph's godson and let's just say that -  Bets are on! The mere mention of monogamy may be enough for the Caliph when the cream of his harem crop is the campy Gypsy Rose Lee. James Boles plays the Caliph and Richard Ney the godson to round out this silly spoof.
