Summary
The first full-length animated film is still hailed as an enchanting masterpiece. Taken from 'Arabian Nights', the film tells the story of a sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a magical flying horse which sends the rider off on a flight to his death. But the prince foils the evil plan and soars headlong into a series of adventures, joining forces with Aladdin and the Witch of the Fiery Mountains, doing battle with the sorcerer's army of monsters and demons, and falling in love
