  1. Trevor Tillman's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    A masterpiece of spectacle. The gargantuan sets, the optical effects, and some very impressive blocking with a roaming camera are a testament to how far the art form had come by this point—an inertia that would falter with the advent of sound. The fantastical illusions and overall story momentum are still able to keep me spellbound for 2.5 hours in a time where much faster, modern films struggle to do the same.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    Un sympathique aventurier, voleur de son état, tombe amoureux de la délicieuse princesse de Bagdad, alors même que la ville est en butte aux assauts d'un méchant prince mongol. Un tapis volant, une pomme magique, un cheval ailé, tout l'arsenal du rêve et de la fantasmagorie hindouiste pour enchanter le spectateur lunaire. Envoutant ! www.cinefiches.com

    An anachronistic delight.

  7. onur.oeg@gmail.com's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    I might just regret to name this movie as silent, for me camera conscious acting, visionary effects, rich and wide decor/framing and most notably magical film orchestra starring the oboet talks deeper and more.. These all created a favourable theme for love though Julanne Jonston and her eyes makes it real for me!

    Actually prefer this over the 40's version, this has more pure magic

  9. José Neves's rating of the film The Thief of 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.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    1924 epic telling (at least in length) of 'The Thief of Bagdad' is still a rip roaring adventure even some almost 90 years later. Fairbank's mugging gets a little ripe from time to time but film consistently remains interesting despite its 155 minute runtime. Some of the effects still look great with rich sets and art deco for the time period.

  12. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    A truly wonderful cinematic experience! This silent epic from 1924 is a treasure to behold on the big screen. Last night was my first time seeing this classic.

  13. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    Designed to show off special effects and Douglas Fairbanks. The effects are surprisingly effective for the time. The Fairbanks surprisingly camera conscious and broad - even for the time. It's easy to see who's vanity project this is. The running time may have delivered good value for filmgoers of the time but ought to have been trimmed by about half an hour for better storytelling.

  14. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    Not as good as 1940 version. Father of Emmerich movies. An extra: 19 yrs old Anna May Wong (Piccadilly) in the cast.

  15. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    Enorme producción. Una clásico ameno y entretenido. Una buena mezcla, melodrama y aventura.

  17. Matt Kilgore's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    One of those examples of how old school effects are superior to CGI.

  18. agostinellips's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    Such a wonderful film! Pure magic! I saw it for the first time when I was a kid, and I remember how fascinated I was when it ended. Made me obsessed with Fairbanks' classics for a couple of months...

  19. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Thief of Bagdad

    My favorite version of the Arabian nights tale is this wonderful, timeless epic fantasy with a great acrobatic performance by Douglas Fairbanks. magical ride for all of us who are still kids.
