Marco Polo's Marvelous, Magical Adventure

CHILDREN’S COMEDY. Marco Polo and his father arrive at the luxurious palace of the great Chinese emperor, Kublai Khan. There, they receive a royal greeting from Khan’s overzealous gong-banging wife, who has been promoted to Acting Prime Minister and whose favorite part of her new job is banging the court gong…over and over again. After their ears stop ringing, Khan summons his daughter, Fo-Nee, the court magician, to perform some “magic” tricks for the weary travelers. But it doesn’t take long before Marco and his father discover that Fo-Nee could be the world’s worst magician! However, the magic of romance is in the air, and Marco and Fo-Nee soon fall in love and begin to make wedding plans. The couple has to make tough decisions like what to eat at the wedding reception―Chinese food, of course! And the dance music? ”How Much Is That Shar-pei in the Window”!
