The Thief of Bagdad (1940, UK)

In this imaginative Arabian Nights fantasy produced by Alexander Korda - a loose remake of the original Douglas Fairbanks silent classic of 1924:

  • the sight of 50 foot tall genie or Djinni (Rex Ingram) in a tiny bottle
  • the character of clever and poor Bagdad thief Abu (15 year-old Sabu) who helped save handsome Prince Ahmad (Jon Justin) and the beautiful Princess (June Duprez) from the villainous, black-clad Grand Vizier Jaffar (Conrad Veidt) by a ride to the rescue on his magic carpet
  • the fanciful elements including a toy horse that could fly, Abu's battle with a giant spider in its huge web, and a dog that was originally a boy
