Ned Thacker, through prenatal suggestion, is born in Kansas with the spirit of D'Artagnan, of Gascony, and, naturally, his gallantries are very much misunderstood by maids and matrons of today, but when he falls in love with Dorothy Morane it takes something more than a millionaire rival to head him off, and it takes even more than a half-crazed Indian guide and the face of the Grand Canyon to keep him from the lady of his choice; not even her mother can do that.Written by

Except for Douglas Fairbanks, whose name appears above the title, there is no cast list. Actors are introduced by intertitle cards just before they appear on the screen. The IMDb cast list therefore uses this "order of appearance" sequence. See more »

Fun silent film has Douglas Fairbanks playing a man living in Kansas with his parents who dreams of a more exciting life. Ever since he was a child his mother read to him The Three Musketeers so as an adult he grows tired of his town and heads out west in hopes of romance and adventure. Until recently the second half of this film was lost but it was eventually found and the film recently premiered on Turner Classic Movies. A lot of lost movies that get found are usually big letdowns but this film here actually is pretty good and should keep action fans entertained. The film opens up with a wild, ten minute sequence, which contains just about every type of action you can imagine. We have wild fist fights, broken glasses and various other items. The lively action at the start of the film makes the movie slow down a tad too much in the middle but the movie ends with more great action as Fairbanks must battle Indians. Fairbanks is very energetic in his role and makes a great character here. Another bonus is a terrific wind storm that happens at the start of the film and the special effects here of the city being blown down are very good for their time. Future director Victor Fleming worked as the cinematographer.
