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.

The Thief of Bagdad is a colorful, lavish\r\nand eye-appealing spectacle.

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.
