    There was a VERY early Tony Curtis Movie (Bronx accent and all) Called “The Prince who was a Thief” which is the cheaper 50s remake. I’m pretty sure I caught that one at a summer movie series when I was a kid. Sabu lived and died in Hollywood after this (considering he had 3 notable roles “The Elephant Boy”, this one and a Live action “Jungle Book” I’ll bet he did a lot of personal appearances and TV). He did take time off to serve in WWII, he was a gunner on a B-25 bomber in the CBI (China Burma India) Theater. What’s interesting is that Tom Harmon (Football hero and father of actor Mark) was a fighter pilot in the same region. I wonder if they ever met at Veterans get-togethers..
