There was a 1940 British remake of the 1924 film The Thief of Bagdad (starring Douglas Fairbanks) which starred Sabu. As well as a 1952 and 1961 film remake. Have you seen them all? I think the ones that stick in my mind the most at the first two (1924 and 1940 remake).
Here are my choices for this Monday:
Fantasy films have an air of magic about them. They bring to us the impossible (ie flying carpets) and they gift us with an experience of thinking outside of the box.
Have you seen any of these fantasy and magic films? Did any of them blow you away with their (at the time) state of the art special effects?
