Son of Ali Baba is a 1952 film starring Tony Curtis. In it he has a line about the palace of his father, which an urban legend has transferred to his better-known film The Black Shield of Falworth.

The line reads, "This is the palace of my father, and yonder lies the Valley of the Sun", and he did deliver it in a markedly New York accent.

The film paired Curtis again with Piper Laurie, who co-starred with him in 1951's The Prince Who Was a Thief.
