    The acrobatic performance of Douglas Fairbanks and "Scheherazade" by Nikolai Rimski Korsakov are the one of the best combination for movie of the silent time.I am 77 year old and I watched it last year wit my grandson and granddaughter who are over 20 and they love it.I am giving 5 stars (*****).

    Douglas Fairbanks is more than a handsome star with great gymnast skills in action adventures. As a gifted comedian, he often enjoyed poking fun at his "First Celebrity" status in his movies. Two highly recommended Fairbanks' features, 4 Stars, include his comedic adventures in "The Mark of Zorro," (1920), and in 1924 "The Thief of Bagdad." Thanks to TCM for Choice Quality cinema.

    A stunning, enthralling and epic silent film. Fairbanks displays his athleticism and eroticism as a thief who falls for a Princess and must prove himself worthy of her, by posing as a Prince with magical abilities. The special effects, costumes and Menzies dream-like sets are dazzling to the eyes, the story is drags for too long, but it's never boring. A great film that capitalizes on Fairbanks stunts and an outstanding visual style, brimmed with awe. I give it a 4/5.

  • What a picture!

    I first had the pleasure of seeing this Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckler at the Egyptian Theater/American Cinematheque last year at the TCM Film Festival. From the very first scene, I knew I was hooked. The film, made all the more captivating, sweeping, and romantic by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra's lush top-notch score, made for a terrific movie-going experience. Fairbanks is at the top of his game, and it's quite clear that he pulled out all the stops for his role as the dashing yet cunning thief of Bagdad. This is a must-see for anyone who not only enjoys silent film, but who loves grade A filmmaking in general.

  • Fantastic Movie

    Hope TCM repeats the recent showing-what a treat! Fairbanks was phenomenal as the thief, as well as in his expertise with his acrobatics. Excellent supporting cast too. This is my favorite silent movie. It's a delight!
