    Description

    Douglas Fairbanks "Thief of Baghdad" Sword. A steel prop sword used by the legendary swashbuckling actor in the 1924 silent-era adventure movie "The Thief of Baghdad." Cinema's first action hero, Fairbanks spared no expense for what may be the most lavish fantasy movie ever made, an adaptation of "A Thousand and One Nights" in which the magic-carpet ride was but one of many fantastic visual marvels. Although quite rusted, the sword is still a handsome piece with a keen blade and plenty of character.
