Product Description:

This box set caters to fans of screen legend Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. with three of the actor's most popular silent works. First up is the comedy WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL BY, directed by GONE WITH THE WIND's Victor Fleming - with Fairbanks as a freewheeling young bachelor bamboozled by a nutty psychiatrist. Next on the bill is the 1917 THE AMERICANO, with Fairbanks as a mining engineer who falls hard for the daughter of a deposed South American leader. Finally, the same year's WILD AND WOOLLY stars Fairbanks as the naïve son of Eastern bluebloods, who idolizes the Old West and inadvertently winds up in a real-life hold-up scenario and tries to use clichéd tricks from western novels to save the day.

Rating 2.0 Acceptable Movie Lover: from AUSTIN, TX US -- August, 30, 2011

I saw "Wild and Wooly" at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia around 1964-5 and it was this film that pulled me into watching the silents. "Wild and Wooly" suffers from a hazy transfer, but it is watchable and still funny. Facial expressions are sometimes lost and these are important to silent comedy. This movie is available in a far more expensive set however and so it depends upon the buyers needs and pocket-book. "When the Clounds Roll By has a better transfer which is good. One can still perceive the power of Douglas Fairbanks and how he became such a great star.
