The Thief of Bagdad

Raoul Walsh graduated from B westerns to the Hollywood front line with this extravagant 1924 Douglas Fairbanks vehicle, opulently produced by what was then Fairbanks's own company, United Artists. Walsh's dynamism is evident in every frame of this deftly Americanized fantasy, beautifully designed by William Cameron Menzies.
