Douglas Fairbanks, a modern musketeer ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2008 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1916's "His Pictures In The Papers" features Douglas as the meat-loving son of a vegetarian food magnate who finds love with an equally carnivorous young woman. It is also a wry and prescient commentary on fame and the lengths some will go to in order to achieve it. Also from 1916, "The Mystery Of The Leaping Fish" is probably the most unconventional film Fairbanks ever appeared in, as it features him as the cocaine-addicted detective "Coke Ennyday." It was co-scripted by Tod Browning and features a flair for the bizarre he would put on ample display when directing "Dracula" and "Freaks" in the early 1930s. "Flirting With Fate" also features some darker-hued humor in its story of a depressed artist who arranges to be killed just before finding good fortune. The final film from 1916, "The Matrimaniac, " co-stars Constance Talmadge in a comic tale of the lengths a young couple will go to in order to tie the knot. The delightful "Wild And Woolly" has the Wild West-obsessed Douglas finding that the Old West does not require as much taming as he once surmised. Similarly, "Reaching For The Moon" chronicles Doug's realization that the life of a European monarch is not the fairy tale he once believed it to be. It is also an interesting comment on America's perceptions of World War I-era Europe with its depiction of a continent dominated by an unending number of assassination plots and murky counterplots. "The Modern Musketeer" demonstrates the limits and the advantages of living life according to a naive sense of chivalry exemplified by D'Artagnan. Its 17th century prologue provides a window into the sort of costume roles Doug would be playing in the years ahead. "When The Clouds Roll By" from 1919 is notable for its more surreal elements including an incredibly original and complicated dream sequence. 1920's "The Mollycoddle" and 1921's "The Nut" offer two final opportunities for Doug to display his athleticism in a modern setting. "The Mollycoddle" is almost a prototype of "North By Northwest" with Doug as a foppish American "corrupted" by the soft life in Europe who is mistaken for an American agent by a gang of ruthless smugglers. "The Nut" is an amusing film featuring Doug as an eccentric inventor whose efforts to help a young woman in her reform campaign go awry. The final film in the set, "The Mark Of Zorro, " was shot prior to "The Nut." Its overall success with critics and moviegoers convinced Doug that he should focus his efforts on producing similar period adventures--M. Boxwood (Amazon)

1 edition published in 1916 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Millicent (Lillian Gish) and her sister Jean (Violet Wilkie) are pariahs in their small town because of their parents' pending divorce. Their only companion is their nurse Susan (Jennie Lee). Finally the day comes when the court has to decide custody, and Millicent is given over to their father, Theodore Ainsley (Ralph Lewis), while Jean is given to their mother, Elinor (Loyola O'Connor). Mr. Ainsley goes on to marry young social butterfly Editha (Alma Reubens). The sisters are closer to each other than they are to their parents, so after Millicent's coming out, she goes to Jean and they run off together, seeking refuge with their old nurse. An officer of the court finds them the next day and the whole family is brought before the judge once again. A young lawyer takes the girls' case and he and Millicent fall in love. The sisters' dilemma is solved when Millicent and the lawyer marry, and she takes custody of Jean. There are a few legal questions in this film -- for example, if Millicent is underage (which she has to be if she is part of a custody suit), then wouldn't she need her family's approval before she could marry? This film, directed by Lloyd Ingraham, shows several reasons why Lillian Gish did her best work with D.W. Griffith"--Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide
