Description by

This classic portrait of Douglas Fairbanks offers a challenging analysis of the career of the actor-athlete-producer who, with Mary Pickford and Charles Chaplin, dominated public imagination through the motion picture screen in the years of the silent cinema. In this monograph, the great journalist Alistair Cooke examines Fairbanks's career step by step. Reprint of 1940 monograph.

Product Description:

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.
