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 - MAGIC CARPET RIDE Raoul Walsh's epic 1924 fantasy adventure 'The Thief of Bagdad' gave legendary swashbuckler Douglas Fairbanks one of his greatest roles. Now considered one of the finest accomplishments of the silent era, 'The Thief of Bagdad' is an astonishing masterpiece for its time and (for anyone with a bit of imagination) for any time. Although it is obvious in hindsight how some of the effects were achieved, 'The Thief of Bagdad' is loaded with them, with endearing"

" Fairbanks' tour-d-force role at the height of his power. While it has crude effects (which is normal for a silent movie) it is impressive how much heart and effort has gone into doing them in order to make a epic fantasy. The use of costumes, extras and sets are impressive. It uses some time to get to the quest-aspect of the film which is the fun and best part of the film. "
