I've lost track of how many times I have seen this film. As a kid, I sat through it from the 1:00 PM Matinee till 10:30 at night. In the 50's, they did not clear the theater between showings so, Saturdays and Sundays were often movie marathon days. As a kid, I also had the same kind of pug nose as the genie.
I loved this movie too as a kid. I also remember spending hours at the movie theater watching movies over and over. And you got a bunch of cartoons to watch too! It was a great time to be a kid!
