From the Film THE ADVENTURES OF HAJJI BABA with music written and directed by Dimitri Tiomkin.

Fun song:

Here's the opening to the film itself.

Wow, a 3 1/2 minute Prologue, before the Main Titles:

Hi zoob,
I have been hoping for many years now that The Adventures Of Haji Baba might get a release. It's a most enjoyable score, and while I do like the Nat King Cole song I would imagine that it might cause some copyright problems if that were to be included, but who knows, maybe I'm wrong ?

The Cole vocal is, naturally, available on one of his album CD's.

Here's another one I'd like to see get proper CD-soundtrack treatment:

Of course, as banjo players, you can tell they both could use some work. But Cole had a way of bringing a touch of class to movies he had barely anything to do with, didn't he? Unfortunately this film was released several months after he passed away.

Gee -- Peter Leeds, Percy Helton Thomas Gomez, John Derek and Claude Akins all speaking perfect French!

Better yet, Peter Leeds, Percy Helton Thomas Gomez, John Derek and Claude Akins as ARABS! Geez, Claude Akins as an Arab is almost as funny as Sterling Hayden as Sir Gawain--"Fine prince YOU turned out to be, flinging rocks like any lowborn Ruff'an."

But, then, I suppose nothing beats John Wayne as Genghis Khan--"Yer Beuootiful in yer wrath."

I just found the 45 rpm (for a quarter at a thrift store) of Tiomkin's Hajji Baba song, with DUEL IN THE SUN on the reverse (the Orgasm Theme.... oh, no,... it's the Ecstasy theme).

Hajji Baba sounds colorful.
