Description by OLDIES.com:
A comic tale of split personality, Double Trouble is Douglas Fairbanks's rarely-seen second major motion picture. He made his screen debut the year before in The Lamb (1915). Upon first arriving in Hollywood, Fairbanks worked under the supervision of D.W. Griffith. But a few months after the release of Double Trouble, Fairbanks would begin a successful association with director John Emerson and writer Anita Loos. The husband-and-wife team emphasized his athleticism in a popular series of romantic comedies that included His Picture in the Papers and The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (Griffith was much more interested in Fairbanks's potential as a serious dramatic actor.) This led to lasting immortality as the movies' first big action star, starting with The Mark of Zorro (1920). Long thought lost, Double Trouble offers us a rare glimpse of this early stage of Fairbanks's career.
