THE GOLDEN ARROW / Titanus - 1962

It's Magic Carpet Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Here's a feature from Italy starring Tab Hunter and filmed at many actual ancient ruins and locations. At the time, this is not a movie Eegah!! and I would go to see, you know, like... Where's the freakin' rubber monster?! Love the name of the production company, Titanus!

Eegah!! sent over a musical soundclip for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the atomic broken arrow, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's an earfull of... THE GOLDEN ARROW!

Tab seems slightly out of place as the working class hero, Hassan, a blond, but, he easily wins the magic golden arrow archery contest.

This causes problems with the ruling class and he's thrown in the clink.

He's saved by a trio of helpful genies, they're his to command since he won the archery contest. He makes his escape.

Hey, what do you know... An ancient i-pad with an Etruscan skin!

He meets the Queen of Rocky Valley and has to fight off these burning men!

He's turned into a ghostlike figure by a genie, so, he pulls a Three Stooges 'needle in the ass' gag on the prince, who's trying to horn in on his girl.

The genies bring out the flying carpets for an all out war with the enemies, Hassan gets a bird's eye view of the action.

The genies gather up large pieces of pottery and drop them on their unsuspecting victims!

And, the bad guys get theirs in the end, they lose the treasure chest and land in a slag pond, where they belong!
