Smile for the camera, 19 June 2002
Author: boblipton from New York City

A sprightly early Fairbanks film. Although too much of the story is told through intertitles, Douglas usual physical gags, including much building climbing and witty situations make for a good time. Look for Erich von Stroheim (who was also an assistant director) as a member of the Weazels Gang.
