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 Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916), a modern-dress comedy, was directed by Christy Cabanne and John Emerson; it stars Fairbanks, Bessie Love, and Allan Sears. Fairbanks plays Coke Ennyday, a cocaine-using scientific detective investigating an opium-smuggling scheme, in this satire of the Sherlock Holmes stories
