Son of Sinbad

Please choose a format above.

At some point, Howard Hughes found time in between meticulously cataloging his urine jar collection and forcing Smithers into the Spruce Moose at gunpoint to produce a film about the Son of Sinbad!

It stars, well… a guy named Sinbad! His son is nowhere to be seen! We are told that his father is also named Sinbad, but he does not make an appearance! Would it have been easier to just make the character Sinbad instead of the Son of Sinbad? Perhaps! But maybe this is the kind of confusion that arises when your executive producer is distracted with his many, many jars of urine.

Also appearing in the film is legendary Persian poet, astronomer, and mathematician, Omar Khayyam, who is of course played by noted Missouri native Vincent Price. We believe Price was only available because he’d foolishly turned down the role of T’Challa.

It’s a Sinbad movie, but unlike Shazaam, it’s very real, so join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for this RiffTrax of Son of Sinbad!
