PART 3 "The Thief of Baghdad" (1978) a TV Movie
A resourceful thief helps a handsome prince fight an evil wizard and win the hand of a beautiful princess. (From imdb)
Or in other words: A sexy thief, who shows up about 16 minutes in, (played by Roddy McDowall), helps a boring prince fight a weirdo to win the hand of a boring princess. They steal a magic carpet and take an awkward ride to the Mines of Moria, where they meet Bilbo Baggins who's all, "Careful, don't get turned into stone!" But Prince is all, "whatevs" and he goes in, and low and behold, gets turned into stone. Ya know, cuz he's WEAK. So look who has to go and SAVE the day: Hasan, the sexy thief. He, of course, isn't too keen about going in, and has to throw one of his typical, sexy Roddy, tantrums (clearly going for an Oscar), but finally Bilbo is like, "Dude. GO IN." So he goes in, resists the temptations around him, and defeats Sauron, the All Seeing Eye of Truth. Now possessors of the great eye, Thief and Princey flee from the mines and are attacked in the sky by The Weirdo and his ringwraith posse. The Weirdo steals the eye from them, and Thief and Princey fall to the ground and somehow get separated. Somewhere along the way, Princey finds a genie. Some stuff happens, and he finds Hasan, and they go back to the palace and more things happen and someway or another, there is a happy ending for everybody, except for Roddy, who doesn't get compensated at all from the Sultan for all his troubles and bravery, so he's like, "screw this!" and takes off like a gangster on the flying carpet with his lady friend into the sunset as they sing "A Whole New World." .....Basically that's what happens. (Most of that synopsis is not entirely true.)
