A Thousand and One Nights (partially 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.
