SYNOPSIS:

A spectacular accomplishment in production design and special effects, Raoul Walsh's The Thief of Bagdad is a bold Arabian adventure starring Douglas Fairbanks as a carefree pickpocket who turns his appealing brand of mischievous thievery toward the attainment of happiness... and an exotic princess (Julanne Johnston). The only way he can win either is by retrieving the rarest treasures hidden within the mysterious Orient, a quest that grows more fantastic with every passing thrill, as the tenacious thief rises high above the city on a magic carpet, battles a fire-breathing dragon in caverns of flame and soars into the clouds on the back of a winged steed via innovative special effects.

This special Kino on Video DVD is the definitive edition of Fairbanks's classic, digitally mastered from a 35mm archive negative. The Digital Stereo Orchestral Score, was adapted from the 1924 Cue Sheet and performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.
