Critics reviews

This textbook racist fantasy takes place inside towering and intricately patterned sets. Walls, gates, lattices: every bit of architecture seems sturdy yet impossibly tall. Douglas Fairbanks in earrings and headband frolics nimbly around this gargantuan playground.

At the height of his reign as “the King of Hollywood” with wife/Queen Mary Pickford, Fairbanks is a magnetic screen presence, combining Chaplin-like physical comedy skills with (possibly the original) Hollywood good looks… The film’s 149-minute running time might test the patience of even the most devout silent film fan, but the decadent costumes, elaborate sets, and Fairbanks’s copious talents provide more than enough baroque pleasure to pass the time.
