Description

    The Thief of Bagdad (United Artists, 1940). One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    A grand, Technicolor classic, The Thief of Bagdad 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. It's been several years since Heritage has offered this engaging one sheet, and this example has had the benefit of expert restoration. Touchup has been applied to folds, the blue in the credits, a chip in the left border and right border that extends into the white box, a tear in the bottom and top border and left background, and pinholes in the borders and background. Nicely restored, the piece is now display-ready. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
