Lousy Play Makes Two Movie Stars
31 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

To be fair, I don't know how well a play "The New Henrietta" was on stage; Douglas Fairbanks had played the main role on Broadway just the year before this film, which is a reworking of the play. Five years later, Fairbanks suggested the part for Buster Keaton, for a film that became "The Saphead". Both "The Lamb" and "The Saphead" were the first feature-length starring roles for the respective would-be stars, making their careers as movie comedians. Yet, it was a lousy story in both adaptations, although Fairbanks and Keaton did their best under the circumstances. As for the adaptations, I prefer "The Lamb" because it's less melodramatic and a little less drawn-out, although it is still slow going compared to Fairbanks's later vehicles.

Actually, this scenario is similar to the one Fairbanks used in many of his early comedies: he plays an effeminate rich boy, with "no backbone", who through some adventure (often by leaving a city such as New York for the wild west), regains his manhood and the girl. "The Lamb", however, lacks the pacing set by director John Emerson and the witty title cards of Anita Loos, which "His Picture in the Papers" (1916) and subsequent Fairbanks pictures maintained. The action picks up at the climax, but that's about it. The title writing here is bad, and there are seemingly too many title cards as a result. The frontal staging of actors for the stationary camera is also dated.

(Note: I saw a dark, poor-quality print.)
