Garbo, in the role of the 17th century Swedish queen who gives up her throne for her lover, moves through various stages of sexual ambiguity. She plays a sexual identity game fully comparable with that of Dietrich in Morocco and Blonde Venus and Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett. In the words of critic Charles Affron 'she hovers in that area between male and female, leaning into her identity as a woman but not abandoning the richness of her compound identity'. Mamoulian described the extraordinary 'memorising of the room' scene following a night of love as 'a sonnet ... sheer poetry and feeling ... with movement like a dance.'

Ali then sneaks into Kamar's harem to tell Sherazade of Haroun's plight, only to have Nadan arrive and offer to have Haroun released if she agrees to poison Kamar at their wedding banquet. Knowing that Nadan plans to have Haroun killed once his escort reaches the river, Ali and the others, who have finally learned Haroun's true identity, race to the river town to save their Caliph. Haroun then arrives at the wedding banquet just in time to stop Sherazade from drinking the poisoned wine. The two brothers then battle over the throne and Sherazade, while Ali arrives with soldiers loyal to Haroun. Kamar is about to kill Haroun, but is stabbed in the back by Nadan.
