The Thief of Bagdad

2K Digital Restoration
(Raoul Walsh, 1924)

Fri, Jan 25, 2013 7 PM

The ever-iconic The Thief of Bagdad shows us a dapper Douglas Fairbanks leaping, swinging, and riding his magic carpet through a maze of wondrous (and pre-digital) sets by William Cameron Menzies. One of the most thrilling epics of the silent era, featuring a recorded score by Carl Davis (Napoleon). (149 mins., 2K DCP)
