Art Graeco’s homoerotic take on the flying carpet scene in The Thief of Bagdad – an Arabian Nights epic fantasy and a magical ride full of surprises.

The subversive homoerotic imagery (what the thief of Bagdad is not wearing, the sweaty bare-chested men around him, beefcake and male bonding), as well as the misogynistic streaks in The Thief of Bagdad leave themselves open to interpretation.
