Hi all,

I'm Madeleine(Maddy)fairly new to the Empire film boards.I'm 24 and love classic films(my favourite decades are 20's 30's,40's and 60's).

I have become a recent devotee of Douglas Fairbanks Sr after seeing him in The Thief Of Bagdhad.Is there anything this man couldn't do?LOL.He did all his own stunts,was gorgeous,sooo sexy and when on screen you can't take your eyes off him.I'm about to watch him and real life wife Mary Pickford in Taming Of The Shrew,looks very good.So any other fans of Doug Sr here?

Love Fairbanks' films. The Thief Of Bagdad was a stunner; Robin Hood is great fun, and makes an interesting comparison with the 1938 version with Errol Flynn; The Black Pirate was one of the earliest films to be made in colour, and still looks gorgeous.
I agree, he had a great personality, which is one of the main reasons why his films are still watchable and enjoyable today. They have a genuine charm and innocence which has been largely lost in much of today's cinema.

Marriage is one of those things that is best gotten over with in youth - like chicken pox.

Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber on weekends.
