Dir. Victor Fleming (1920). In this charming and imaginative silent comedy Douglas Fairbanks burlesques the effete European playboy in an intrigue-filled story that climaxes in an awesome action sequence in the rugged Arizona desert. Included are a number of fine visual gags which give him a chance to exhibit an aplomb worthy of Chaplin.
