Though expensively mounted, Secrets of the Orient ends up looking like a daydream, and a fragmentary one at that. Nikolai Kolin plays the lead character, a humble Arabian cobbler who yearns to be a man of great wealth. Falling asleep, Kolin imagines he's a powerful prince, with slaves and harem girls at his beck and call. The fantasy framework allows for some satire on the whole Arabian-nights genre.
