Wham, Bam, Thank You Khayam

Son of Sinbad's a trifle grotesque
with its harem girls straight from burlesque
Vincent Price supplies ham
as Omar Khayam
But his co-stars are more statuesque.

David Cairns

Vincent Price is tentmaker Omar Khayyám, still working on his Rubáiyát, in Son of Sinbad (Ted Tetzlaff, 1955). With Mari Blanchard, stripper Lili St. Cyr and a bevy of beauties all under contract to producer Howard Hughes. Image source:;
