    Description

    The Thief of Bagdad (Minerva, 1946). First Post War Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    This Technicolor classic stars John Justin as Prince Ahmad, Conrad Veidt as the scheming Jaffar, and Sabu as Abu, the wily thief who saves the day. Ahmad, the rightful King of Bagdad, is blinded and thrown into a dungeon where he meets up with Abu. The duo escape and set about wonderful adventures that include all the elements of classic Arabian Nights tales including a flying carpet, a genie (Rex Ingram), and of course, a beautiful princess (played by June Duprez). Lauded for its photography and effects, the film won Academy Awards for Art Direction, Cinematography, and Special Effects. Anselmo Ballester's lush artwork fills the very rare Italian 4-foglio offered here, which also happens to be in superb condition. Restoration has addressed pinholes in the borders, small tears in the background, and a small chip in the top border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
