The Thief of Bagdad (German: Die Diebin von Bagdad) is a 1952 West German musical comedy film directed by Karel Lamac and starring Theo Lingen, Paul Kemp, Sonja Ziemann and Rudolf Prack.[1] It is not a remake of the 1940 film of the same name, but a comedy about the magic tricks of a female thief in Old Baghdad. It was filmed at studios in Bendestorf, Lower Saxony. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Heinrich Beisenherz and Alfred Bütow.
