The remastered DVD by Kino Video DOES NOT have the Carl Davis score. Instead, music is performed by the Mt. Alto Motion Picture Orchestra. The Carl Davis music is incorrectly listed in several internet descriptions of this special edition DVD (2004). I prefer the Carl Davis version. As of today, Jan 2005, there is no DVD version with the Carl Davis score.

I think never heard of 1924 version before because I has 1978 version and borrowed 3 days of the library in Vernon, CT called "The Thief of Baghdad" a 1981 Video Gems edition and out of print. A tale about the magic carpet, the arabian nights, and one man has a thief of baghdad. Just like in the movie, Aladdin and The Thief and the Cobbler, Good pick from the movie about Handsome Prince Taj and the evil Jaudur are rivals for the hand of a beautiful princess. Her father set a formidable task for the suitors: to bring back "the most valuable thing in the world" for his daughter. Accompanied by a rogue known as " the thief of Baghdad," Taj sets out to bring back the magnificent All Seeing Eye, aided by a grateful genie whom Taj frees from his bottle.

This movie was first at most things whe movie goers take for granted. "Thief.." used stop photography, a reapeating back drop for the flying horse sequence, and a flying carpet that used a steel wire under each corner that could hold one ton per wire! A lot of "gimmicks" not used until the 1950's! And have since gone by the wayside. Black and white of the silver screen give, I think a deapth of realism to what we are viewing and I think an unvarnished honesty to the story.Within a few short years of the completion of this film the Depression set in and those who could afford to see a film did not want to see such a fanciful film. "thief.." is my favorite silent film.
