If Grecian storyteller Aesop really did exist, he was most likely a black

slave. He wasn't an Austrian actor with an Egyptian name, but that's who

played him in A Night in Paradise. Turhan Bey portrays the fable-spouting

Aesop, who tries to escape his bondage by disguising himself as an old

man. It is at the lavish court of King Croesus that the greyed-up Aesop

first meets luscious Grecian princess Merle Oberon. The low-born

talespinner is smitten, and determines to win the princess for his very

own. Moral: If Universal buys a novel by George S. Hellman titled The

Peacock's Feather, transforms it into a picture called A Night in Paradise,

and appoints onetime Abbott and Costello cohort Arthur Lubin as

director, you know what you're in for.
