An animated film presenting the tale of the little boy and the forty thieves with charmingly designed and coloured figures. Ali Baba’s discovery of the hidden treasure, how he keeps Mustafa and the thieves from recapturing it, and the lad’s generosity as he distributes the jewels among the townspeople is told with brief rhymed narration to the accompaniment of wind music. No other credits available.
