Legendary producer Alexander Korda's marvel The Thief of Bagdad, inspired by The Arabian Nights, is one of the most spectacular fantasy films ever made, pioneering in its eye-popping technical wizardry. When Prince Ahmad (John Justin) is blinded and castout of Bagdad by the nefarious Jaffar (Conrad Veidt), he joins forces with the scrappy thief Abu (the incomparable Sabu) to win back his royal place, as well as the heart of a beautiful princess (June Duprez). With its luscious Technicolor, vivid sets, and unprecedented visual wonders, The Thief of Bagdad has charmed viewers of all ages for decades.
Lavish Technicolor settings and dazzling effects highlight producer Alexander Korda's classic take on the "Arabian Nights" adventures. Sabu is the title urchin, who helps deposed prince John Justin rescue princess June Duprez from wicked vizier Conrad Veidt. Spectacular cinema fantasy also stars Rex Ingram as Sabu's crafty genie. 106 min.
