Lots of vibrant eye candy and the special effects mostly still work even after 70 years. Some are still remarkable, such as the many armed blue automaton and the temple of the All Seeing Eye. June Duprez is dreamily beautiful as the love struck princess. The boy thief’s annoying over acting was the only thing that kept me from loving this. Very entertaining and colorful fantasy.
