The Thief of My Childhood

This in general is a movie with a lot of great banter.  When Abu meets his djinn and asks for his 2nd wish, well, I wish I had the energy to copy it all here; but this I couldn't pass up:

Djinn:  And the tongue of a liar!  But he who would steal the all seeing eye from the very brow of the goddess must be neither a thief or a braggart but a hero!

The djinn did a very good job of delivering this line.  Oh, I should say, the movie is The (wonderful) Thief of Baghdad.

Since I watched this flick I've found it's slightly haunted me; in a good way. I sort of wish I was still watching it. Though it had perhaps some of the most corny acting ever (save for Abu/Abou and the djinn) there was something exceptionally imaginative about it. Sweet, simple, and creative; alas, should be the nature of life.
