366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 304

The Date: July 30
The Movie: Thief of Bagdad (1924)
What Is It?: Raoul Walsh’s fantasy is one of the most dazzling and exciting products of the silent era. Douglas Fairbanks swash buckles his way across sumptuous sets and tools around on a flying carpet and a Pegasus. Everyone wears the most gorgeous costumes you’ve ever seen and the celestial special effects are the stuff dreams are made of.
Why Today?: On this day in 762, Baghdad is founded.
