Cures for Hypochondria
28 June 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Another amusing social comedy in the Fairbanks corpus as he reforms a bunch of hypochondriacs -- including the woman he loves -- by stranding them on an island and making them take exercise before breakfast. Script by Fairbanks and Anita Loos. It's also the movie debut of character actor Gustav von Seyffertitz.
