Lately, I have seen quite a few silent features but, to be honest, I usually have a hard time to watch them. Personally, I find it pretty tough to sit through a full length feature without any dialogs, especially when it is about 3 hours long. However, I had a good time to watch this one though because it was actually quite fun. Indeed, it is a great adventure, a real escapist feature, and I thoug... read more

Douglas Fairbanks, one of the great founding fathers of cinema, introduced numerous characters to the silver screen – Robin Hood, Zorro, the Three Musketeers, and in this film, he brought the flavor and images of the Arabian Nights to vivid life. The Thief of Bagdad is pure spectacle and lavish production design, held together by Fairbanks’ live-wire and stunt-heavy central performance.

The Thief of Bagdad

“Douglas Fairbanks, one of the great founding fathers of cinema, introduced numerous characters to the silver screen – Robin Hood, Zorro, the Three Musketeers, and in this film, he brought the flavor and images of the Arabian Nights to vivid life. The Thief of Bagdad is pure spectacle and lavish production design, held together by Fairbanks’ live-wire and stunt-heavy central performance.

Despite not being the director of this material, Fairbanks feels like the main guiding hand of this production. Great movie stars had a talent for doing this, warping directors and material into their great personas. The outcomes varied, but Fairbanks and director Raoul Walsh crafted something truly magical with The Thief of Bagdad.

Narrative coherence and deep substance is not its ” read more

A Movie A Year (Part 1) (102 movies items)

" Note : I had a good time to watch this one though because it was actually quite fun. Indeed, it is a great adventure, a real escapist feature, and I thought it was more entertaining than all those heavy dramas directed by D.W. Griffith for example. To be honest, as soon as he fell in love with the princess, the whole thing lost some steam and I preferred when he was just a devilish thief but it was still a pretty cool flick."

Indeed, it is a great adventure, a real escapist feature, and I thought it was more entertaining than all those heavy dramas directed by D.W. Griffith for example. I especially enjoyed the first part when you have Douglas Fairbanks making some trouble in Bagdad’s market.

20 Great Films from the 20s (20 movies items)

"One of the most lavish and expensive films of the 20s, Raoul Walsh's 'The Thief of Bagdad' is the first screen version of a story that was filmed several times, though no other version captures the magic of this gem. Using the most beautiful effects of the time, 'The Thief of Bagdad' makes the audience believe in flying carpets, winged horses, magic ropes and giant monsters, all in a time when bringing any of these to the screen would have been a daunting prospect. Producer/star Douglas Fairbank"

The 67 Most Influential Films Ever Made (67 movies items)

"Influential, How? The stuff of fantasy. From magic carpets to invisibility cloaks, winged horses to giant spiders, Raoul Walsh’s ‘fantasy’ film used every single dollar of its then-unprecedented $1m budget to show silent audiences just how fantastical celluloid could be. Every fantasy film since owes it a big debt. Money Shot: The flying carpet ride over a fairytale Bagdad... "

" Douglas Fairbanks never looked better than he did in this one-sheet for the 1924 swashbuckler. But as the producer of The Thief of Baghdad, Fairbanks ensured his image would look good by asking illustrator Adrian Gill Spear to create the poster for the United Artists film."
