The Thief of Bagdad (1924), by Raoul Walsh, starring Douglas Fairbanks. 139 minutes
Presentation: Román Gubern

The Thief of Bagdad (1924), by Raoul Walsh, deployed an amazing visual imagination by freely adapting the Arabian story of One Thousand and One Nights for the big screen, in a surprising art nouveau set design, with Mexican extras recruited in Los Angeles and starring the athletic Douglas Fairbanks, who learnt Nijinsky’s choreography in order to adapt it to his performance.
