A Thousand and One Nights (found English dub of anime film; 1969)
A Thousand and One Nights is a 1969 anime feature film directed by Eiichi Yamamoto, collaborating with Osamu Tezuka, and the first entry in Mushi Production's Animerama trilogy, a series of anime films aimed at adult audiences.
The film was also given an American release at some point in 1969, complete with an English dub, predating the first American X-rated animated film, Ralph Bakshi's Fritz the Cat, by three years. However, while the film was a hit in Japan, it did poorly in the United States, where it only received a limited release. Additionally, the English version had 28 minutes of footage cut from the film for unknown reasons.
On May 3rd, 2020, anime distributor Discotek Media announced that they have discovered the English dub from an old print of the film. They have restored the dub and will be releasing it on Blu-ray alongside the original Japanese version.
