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)

Douglas Fairbanks came from Broadway to the movies in 1915 when high salaries were luring well-known stage actors to the new feature-length pictures. Although most of these performers failed to 'register' on camera and returned to New York, Fairbanks quickly became a supernova. His energetic, optimistic character, his ingratiating smile, his graceful, acrobatic stunts (he did his own), clever writing, and accomplished staging rapidly made Fairbanks one of the most admired stars in the world. The Matrimaniac (1916), a modern-dress comedy, was directed by Paul Powell; it stars Fairbanks, Constance Talmadge, and Wilbur Higby. Fairbanks and Talmadge are a couple eloping by train. When Fairbanks leaves to find a minister, he is separated from his wife-to-be and spends the rest of the film trying to find and marry her

"Hector Tomley (ever-popular 1920s leading man Harrison Ford) marries Phyllis (Talmadge) while his friend and rival, novelist Donald Wales (Kenneth Harlan), is hiking through the jungle as a publicity stunt for his latest book. But Phyllis finds Tomley too prosaic for her tastes, and when Wales returns, she's attracted once again to his sense of romance. Tomley agrees to a divorce until a Native American friend suggests he win her back by primitive means. This sparks an idea, and Tomley kidnaps Phyllis and Wales. He locks them up together in a bare cabin and encourages Wales to use his romantic skills in this decidedly unromantic setting. The writer fails miserably, while Tomley proves how manly he is. Phyllis comes to her senses and halts the divorce proceedings."--Www.allmovie.com
