The Adventures of Marco Polo

If you can believe Gary Cooper as a 13th century Venetian, you will have no difficulty seeing Basil Rathbone as a Saracen. Even more fanciful casting is Sigrid Gurie ("The Norwegian Garbo!") as a Chinese princess. Throw away the distractions of completely wrong history and it is completely enjoyable fantasy. Map montage fun: find Yrac!
