Trailers & Clips
One of the most imaginative of all silent movies, The Thief of Bagdad is a dazzling Arabian Nights adventure fantasy. Fairbanks is at his lightest and impudent best as the dashing Ahmed, the thief who wins a princess.
“An epic romantic fantasy-adventure inspired by several of the Arabian Nights tales, The Thief of Bagdad is the greatest artistic triumph of Fairbanks’s career.”
“AMERICAN SILENT CINEMA AT ITS MOST FLAMBOYANT! A dizzy conglomeration of Manhattan chic, Art Deco, and rampant Chinoiserie guaranteed to amaze the eyes!”
“The Thief of Bagdad is a colorful, lavish and eye-appealing spectacle.”
“It was Fairbanks who essentially invented the American action star.”
