Thief of Bagdad

1924

Raoul Walsh
Director

A common thief falls for the Caliph's daughter but has several royal suitors to contend with.

Epic silent spectacle with some astonishing moments. Perhaps a bit too much gesticulating but good fun. The 'huge' chimpanzee guard had me fooled there for a while. Anna May Wong steals it as a devious handmaiden.
