Personal Quote:

[Referring to D.W. Griffith] D. W. didn't like my athletic tendencies, or my spontaneous habit of jumping a fence or scaling a church at unexpected moments which were not in the script. Griffith told me to go into Keystone comedies. See more »

Trivia:

Although Fairbanks had met Mary Pickford and her husband Owen Moore at Elsie Janis's Tarrytown home in 1914, the actress considered him brash. However, it was at a dinner dance at New York's Algonquin Hotel the following year that they danced and fell in love. However, it was not until 1920 that Pickford divorced Moore and married the swashbuckling star. See more »
