The Thief of Bagdad

Raoul Walsh USA, 1924

josé neves's rating of the film Der Dieb von Bagdad

Cinematography by Arthur Edeson. "Desire" list: although the mustache is not exactly of an imperishable style his revelry and bouncy energy is actually of the most perennial that can be desired and, accordingly, Douglas Fairbanks will be much more credible as desirable object than Valentino, his rival at the time , much more stuck to the contingencies of the period and therefore less vital in our times.
