This wondrous fantasy comes out of the pages of "A Thousand and One Nights."
When the nefarious Jaffar usurps the Sultan's throne, the princess's beloved
suitor Ahmad and the strong and handsome thief Abu use magic to help the king
regain power. To defeat them, Jaffar causes Ahmad to go blind, and turns Abu
into a dog. But the heroes overcome these adversities and conquer many other
mortal dangers before reclaiming the kingdom.
The Thief of Bagdad made quite an impact on the Academy, winning three Awards: Best Special Effects, Colour Art Direction and Colour Cinematography. It alos had the honour of racking up 6 different directors on account of Producer Alexander Korda's incredible demands; one of which was himself and another his brother, Zoltan.
