A spectacular accomplishment in production design and special effects, Raoul Walsh's The Thief of Bagdad is a bold Arabian adventure starring Douglas Fairbanks as a carefree pickpocket who turns his appealing brand of mischievous thievery toward the attainment of happiness ... and an exotic Princess. The only way he can win either is by retrieving the rarest treasures hidden within the mysterious Orient, a quest that grows more fantastic with every passing thrill.

Wonderful, Imaginative, Artistic sets. and costumes. Fun to watch even though it is a silent film. It was an inspiration to writers, actors and filmmakers to follow. Douglas Fairbanks was an excellent physical and funny actor, CG

This was a good movie. Good for kids and adults. Mythical stuff and old fashioned special effects.

Funny too.

Never knew Douglas Fairbanks had such a nice body, and the black slave was pretty buff too. Great for moms hehe.

Douglas Fairbanks is terrific in this film of wonders in the Arabian world of yesteryear. Fairbanks was not tall but his physique is marvelous! This film shows just how actors without much dialog can put out great entertainment. The sets of this story are fabulous! This film today would too expensive to produce.

What a fantastic movie! Douglas Fairbanks has a joyful physicality that is infectious, and the 3-hours never drag. Outstanding set and costume design make this a visual delight!
