The Mollycoddle( Visual )

3 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Douglas Fairbanks came from Broadway to the movies in 1915 when high salaries were luring well-known stage actors to the new feature-length pictures. Although most of these performers failed to 'register' on camera and returned to New York, Fairbanks quickly became a supernova. His energetic, optimistic character, his ingratiating smile, his graceful, acrobatic stunts (he did his own), clever writing, and accomplished staging rapidly made Fairbanks one of the most admired stars in the world. He produced 4 films for United Artists, including The Mollycoddle (1920), directed by Victor Fleming and starring Fairbanks, Ruth Renick, and Wallace Beery. After living in Europe for many years, Fairbanks returns to his home in Arizona in this adventure story. He battles and captures Wallace Beery, a desperado, while also pursuing and winning Ruth Renick
