Douglas Fairbanks is said to have put his last shirt on, or in, the production of his own film, 'The Thief of Bagdad' which is coming to the Coronet on Friday next. When shown at Drury Lane, it moved an eminent person to say: 'The Thief of Bagdad is one of the films that in one's memory top this year and many a year behind. It is the first real fairy tale to be shown on an English screen.' Much more of this in words of praise which coming from England about an American film, cannot be said to be over prejudiced, but paying just tribute to a magnificent production. Film synopsis included.
