After being released from his bottle by Harold Ventimore, the genie Fakrash commits himself to improving his new master's life. The only problem is that instead of helping Harold, Fakrash tends to get his master into more predicaments than he gets him out of.Written by
Ventimore's closing to Fakrash, "What we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly and it has little value" is a paraphrase of Thomas Paine, who said "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated." in "The (American) Crisis", a pamphlet that he might have read as a schoolboy studying American revolution history. It is more famous for the phrase, "These are the times that try men's souls". See more »

I'll admit Miss Kitten is not without charm. But, she is no comparison to the beauties who adorn the court of King Solomon. Say the word and I'll bring you - a hundred wives to replace her.
Don't be ridiculous.
Not even two. It's against the law for a man to have more than one wife.
A revolting waste of man power.

The Brass Bottle, which I thought was quite entertaining, was obviously the basis for the "I Dream of Jeannie" television series, but one thing I liked that was in the movie that wasn't really dealt with in the television show was that the genie utilized his ability to see the future to his master's advantage. This was particularly amusing when it came to the confident efforts of the genie in the management of his master's investments. When I watched "I Dream of Jeannie", I always wondered whether Jeannie could tell the future, and if so, why she didn't use that ability to help her master. It really seems to me that had she done so, it would have made a great television series even better.
