The Thief of Baghdad

The Thief of Baghdad (1924) stars Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Anna May Wong. It is directed by Raoul Walsh.

It's online at youtube in 14 pieces. Part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14

Or Kino Video has a beautiful edition.

1000 Misspent Hours doesn't like Fairbanks' performance. There was a remake in 1940 starring Sabu (one of Roger Ebert's "great movies": "This 1940 movie is one of the great entertainments. It lifts up the heart.") and another in 1961 starring Steve Reeves. Hey! Don't laugh! I like Steve Reeves.
