I’m a bit late, but yesterday was the 35th anniversary of her death. She was a singular lady, that one.
The mesmerizing and incredibly accomplished Douglas Fairbanks the elder was born on 23 May 1883.
Pro Top: The First King of Hollywood: The Life of Douglas Fairbanks by Tracey Goessel is a fantastic book.
The CAPA Summer Movie Series is one of the (many, many) reasons I am thrilled to be living in my hometown again. It’s the oldest still-running classic film series in the US.
Of this year’s line-up, I’m particularly excited to see the gorgeously photographed silent classic “Sunrise” (1927) blossom on a big screen. Bonus: Clark Wilson will be on hand at the Ohio Theatre to play the Mighty Morton organ.
I’ll definitely dedicate another post or two to the series. Until then…
