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.

Description: The thief will steal the gold from your purse; the food from your house; or the magic rope.

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) (103 movies items)

" Note : I had a good time to watch this one 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."

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"
