The Thief of Bagdad (1924)

Thief of Bagdad (1924) (91) From magic ropes and carpets to monsters, moving trees, and sheer acrobatics – the special effects in this film were unprecedented in 1924 and are still a pleasure on the eyes of modern audiences. Douglas Fairbanks is every bit the action star that Bruce Lee was in his own lifetime, and this film finds him at the very top of his game. With its ambitious sets, hordes of extras, and significant screentime, The Thief of Bagdad is in every sense the forerunner of the epic fantasy films of the early 21st century.
