Clip from The Thief of Bagdad

Special effects 1924 style! As part of the July series “Race and Hollywood: Arab Images on Film,” TCM aired The Thief of Bagdad last night. I had forgotten how much I love this movie and Douglas Fairbanks. This film is pure delight, and here’s one of the more delightful moments to whet your appetite.

If you missed it, The Thief of Bagdad is available for download at www.internetarchive.org (original, without “extra” footage) and can also be streamed on Netflix.
