Her father, the Sultan, is fascinated by the magical mechanical flying horse that Jaffar, a skilled sorcerer , offers; he agrees to the proposed marriage. Upon hearing this, the Princess, now deeply in love with Ahmad, runs away. Confronted by Ahmad, Jaffar magically blinds him and turns Abu into a dog; the spell can only be broken if Jaffar holds the Princess in his arms. The Princess is captured and sold in the slave market. She is bought secretly by Jaffar, but falls into a deep sleep from which he cannot rouse her.
Ahmad is tricked by Jaffar's servant Halima into awakening the Princess. Halima then lures her onto Jaffar's ship by telling her that there is a doctor aboard who can cure Ahmad's blindness.
Jaffar informs the Princess about the spell, so she allows herself to be embraced; Ahmad's sight is restored and Abu returned to human form. They pursue in a small boat, but Jaffar conjures up a storm that shipwrecks them. The Princess persuades Jaffar to return her to Basra; she tearfully implores her father not to force her into the marriage. Furious when the Sultan agrees, Jaffar presents him with another mechanical toy: the "Silver Maid", a many-armed dancing statue which stabs the Sultan to death.
He then sets sail for Bagdad taking the princess. Abu awakes alone on a deserted beach and finds a bottle. When he opens it, an enormous genie appears.

Embittered by his imprisonment, the genie informs Abu that he is going to kill him, but Abu tricks him back into the bottle. The genie then offers to grant Abu three wishes if he will let him out again. The hungry boy uses his first wish to ask for sausages. When Abu demands to know where Ahmad is, the genie flies Abu to the top of the highest mountain in the world, where inside a temple is an enormous statue with a large jewel, the All-Seeing Eye, set in its forehead. The genie tells Abu that the Eye will show him the location of Ahmad.
Abu fights off a giant spider while climbing the statue to steal the gem. For his second wish, The genie takes Abu to Ahmad. When Ahmad asks to see the Princess, Abu has him gaze into the All-Seeing Eye, where he sees Jaffar arranging for the Princess to inhale the fragrance of the Blue Rose of Forgetfulness, which makes her forget her love. In agony, Ahmad lashes out at Abu. During the ensuing argument, Abu unthinkingly wishes Ahmad to Bagdad. The genie, freed after granting the last wish, abandons Abu in the wilderness.
Ahmad appears in Jaffar's palace and is quickly captured, but seeing him restores the Princess's memory. The furious usurper sentences them both to death. Abu, unwilling to watch further, shatters the All-Seeing Eye and is transported to the "land of legend", where he is thanked by the Old King for freeing its inhabitants.
To save Ahmad, however, Abu steals the king's magic flying carpet and rushes to Ahmad's rescue. Abu's aerial arrival in Bagdad which fulfills a prophecy cited a few times during the course of the film sparks a revolt against Jaffar.premkampdwinvena.cf/3501.php

Abu saves Ahmad then kills the fleeing Jaffar with his crossbow, and Ahmad regains his kingdom and his love. However, when Abu hears Ahmad telling the people of his plan to send Abu to school to train to become his new Grand Vizier, Abu flies away on the carpet to find fun and adventure.
Producer Alexander Korda, after a search for a director, chose German filmmaker Ludwig Berger in early , but by the early summer became dissatisfied with Berger's overall conception of the movie—which was too small-scale and intimate—and, specifically, the score that Berger proposed to use. Essentially behind Berger's back, British director Michael Powell was brought in to shoot various scenes—and Powell's scheduled work grew in amount and importance whilst, in the meantime, Korda himself did his best to undercut Berger on his own set; and while publicly siding with Berger on the issue of the music, he also undercut Berger's chosen composer Oscar Straus by bringing in Miklos Rozsa and putting him into an office directly adjacent to Berger's with a piano, to work on a score.
Eventually, Berger was persuaded to walk away from the project, and American filmmaker Tim Whelan , who had just finished work on another Korda-produced movie Q Planes was brought in to help augment Powell's work. But with the outbreak of the Second World War in September , work was suspended as Powell was taken off the picture and put to work on a morale-boosting documentary, The Lion Has Wings. Powell had remained in England, and so direction was taken up in Hollywood by Menzies and Zoltan Korda during the summer of —including shots of the heroes in the Grand Canyon , Monument Valley , Bryce Canyon  : and the Painted Desert ; the scenes in the Temple of the Goddess of Light, among the very last to be written, were done late in the summer, and the film was being edited and re-structured into the fall of The film was Korda's most successful in the US.

Although it was a remake of a silent film starring Douglas Fairbanks , this film has been highly influential on later movies based on The Book of One Thousand and One Nights setting. For example, the Disney film Aladdin borrows freely from it, particularly the characters of the evil Vizier and the Sultan, both drawn with a marked similarity to the characters in The Thief of Bagdad.
The villian Jafar is named after Jaffar.
