The Veils of Bagdad is a 1953 American adventure film directed by George Sherman and starring Victor Mature and Mari Blanchard.[1][2]


In 1560, Antar is sent by Selima, head of the Ottoman Empire, to prevent Pasha Hammam from attempting to overthrow the emperor.

Selima blames Hammam and his assassin Kasseim for the death of her father.

Kasseim's wife, Rosanna, falls in love with Antar, but he wants Selima for himself.



The film was originally known as Prince of Bagdad and was based on an original story. In July 1952 Universal announced Victor Mature would star and Maureen O'Hara was his "likely" co-star.[3][4] Victor Mature was borrowed from 20th Century Fox.[5] He made it after completing The Glory Brigade and before The Robe - however release was held up until after The Robe had been released.

In October, George Sherman was assigned to direct.[6]

Eventually Maureen O'Hara asked to be relieved of the assignment and her role was taken by Universal contract player Mari Blanchard.[7]

James Arness was borrowed from Wayne-Fellows.[8] The film also featured a young Stuart Whitman, who had just signed a long term contract with Universal.[9]
