Douglas Fairbanks

The Making of a Screen Character

Essay by Alistair Cooke.

This now classic portrait of Douglas Fairbanks--the swashbuckling original King of Hollywood--was first published in 1940. Long out of print and hard to find, Alistair Cooke's posthumous biography was the first serious consideration of the career of the great silent screen star and husband of America's sweetheart, Mary Pickford. Reissued here in a facsimile edition, The Making of a Screen Character treats, step by step, the course of Fairbanks' career, and sheds light on the mysterious ingredients of screen popularity and on the history of motion pictures generally.
Douglas Fairbanks
