Happy Birthday Douglas Fairbanks
THE THIEF OF BAGDAD (1924, United Artists, tinted)
Born May 23, 1883, Douglas Fairbanks is captivating
in this Arabian Nights fantasy, a story told with wit
and intelligence, spectacular sets designed by William
Cameron Menzies, and fantastic photography by Arthur
Edeson. Because of its 2 ½ hour length it will
play on its own with an intermission.
