Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 45 ratings.
AS ALWAYS ALPHA VIDEO HAS DONE IT AGAIN! THEY HAVE RELEASED ANOTHER AFFORDABLE CLASSIC FROM HOLLYWOODS GREAT SILENT ERA. THIS TITLE IS A "MUST" FOR ANY SERIOUS MOVIE COLLECTOR.
Very satisfying! A lowly thief falls for the princess, and and competes with her noble suitors--including an evil khan who schemes to conquer the city. Magic is alive in old Bagdad, but love is the strongest enchantment of all.
This movie is long but the action keeps galloping along. The actors are very theatrical, as they cannot speak to express their emotions. The sets are lavish, the special effects surprisingly good. The music will get repetetive, but you'll hardly notice. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
