Movies Ali Baba Goes to Town (TCF 1937, Eddie Cantor, Gypsy Rose Lee) Published 8 months ago on September 14, 2018 Ali Bobo (Eddie Cantor), an extra working on a splashy Arabian adventure in Hollywood, falls asleep on the set and dreams he is back in ancient Arabia. There he is hired by Sultan of Baghdad to act as Chief Minister. Resolving to turn Baghdad into a peaceful, happy utopia, Ali sets about decommissioning the Sultan’s army, increasing taxes on the rich, and increasing the availability of jobs. Understandably, Ali’s new schemes do not wash well with all and pretty soon he has several enemies all bent on murdering him. Overcoming them with the help of a flying carpet, Ali saves the day and then wakes up to find himself back in reality. Shirley Temple, Tyrone Power and other stars appear at a Hollywood premiere at the end of the movie. The film being shown is the one in which Cantor’s character, a hobo named Al Babson, finds work as an extra. production details USA | Twentieth Century Fox | 81 minutes | 1937 Director: David Butler cast Charles Lane as Doctor John Carradine as Ishak Ferdinand Gottschalk as Chief Councilor Warren Hymer as Tramp Alan Dinehart as Boland Stanley Fields as Tramp Maurice Cass as Omar Paul Hurst as Captain Eddie Cantor as Ali Baba Tony Martin as Yusuf Roland Young as Sultan June Lang as Princess Miriam Gypsy Rose Lee as Sultana Virginia Field as Dinah Jeni Le Gon as Specialty Dancer Douglass Dumbrille as Prince Musah Alan DinehartCharles LaneComedyDavid ButlerEddie CantorFamilyFantasyFerdinand GottschalkJohn CarradineJune LangMaurice CassPaul HurstRoland YoungStanley FieldsTony MartinWarren Hymer Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 hours ago Victorian Sensations: Seeing and Believing Series Final Wed 5 Jun on BBC Four In the final episode of this series, psychotherapist Philippa Perry explores how the late Victorian passion for science co-existed with...
