Douglas Fairbanks and the American Century

Cover: 'Douglas Fairbanks and the American Century'

Staff Review: "Douglas Fairbanks and the American Century" by John C. Tibbetts


Fans of silent cinema will enjoy this in-depth look at the films of Douglas Fairbanks, the swashbuckling hero from such silent classics as The Mark of Zorro and Robin Hood. While not for readers looking for a biographical account of Fairbanks’s life and his marriage to Mary Pickford, this volume is perfect for those who are more interested in a cinematic retrospective. The authors are very thorough with their presentation of the many films of Fairbanks’s long career, revealing details and synopses of films lost forever due to deterioration or neglect.
