Japanese actor Sessue Hayakawa is cast as an ancient Egyptian donkey boy in An Arabian Knight. The humble Hayakawa rescues high-born Lillian Hall from lascivious pasha Fred Jones. All this brouhaha is actually a dream experienced by Hall. In the tradition of the "flashback" sequences in the like-vintage Cecil B. DeMille productions, Hall is able to apply the events of the dream into her contemporary circumstances. An Arabian Knight was produced by the old Robertson-Cole outfit, which eventually grew up to become RKO Radio Pictures.
