Trailer: The Thief of Bagdad (1924)
A recalcitrant thief vies with a duplicitous Mongol ruler for the hand of a beautiful princess.
The Thief of Bagdad is a dazzling Arabian Nights adventure fantasy set in the city of Bagdad and one of the most imaginative of all silent movies. The elaborate and lush backgrounds, the massive sets by William Cameron Menzies who would later design Gone With The Wind, all have an expressionist quality unique for American films of the time. Fairbanks is at his lightest and most impudent best as the dashing Ahmed, the thief who wins a princess. via The Thief of Bagdad - Trailer
