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, with 19 minutes of rare outtakes and special effects footage.


DVD Extras Include:
  • Filmed Introduction by Orson Welles
  • Nineteen minutes of rare outtakes (Courtesy of Bruce Lawton)
  • Rare special effects footage
  • Excerpt of Paul Leni's WAXWORKS (Fairbank's Inspiration for THIEF)
  • Excerpt of Georges Melies's ARABIAN NIGHTS ("Le Palais des Mille et Une Nuits," 1905)
  • Excerpts from Souvenir Program
  • Newly Mastered from an Archival 35mm Negative
  • Digital Stereo Orchestral Score Performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra adapted from the Original 1924 Cue Sheets.
