Douglas Fairbank's Last Film For Paramount
15 January 2015 | by PamelaShortSee all my reviews

Teddy Drake, ( Douglas Fairbanks ) is a pleasure-seeking aristocrat who ends up expelled from his exclusive Fifth Avenue club for playing practical jokes and other rambunctious antics. He decides to reform his selfish ways and boards a train heading heading for the Southwest. His first good deed helping an old woman off the train, puts Teddy on the wrong train where he meets Manuel Lopez ( Albert McQuarrie ) a Mexican bandit. To hide Lopez from a crooked sheriff, and because Teddy left his shirt in the first train, Teddy exchanges clothes with the bandit. In the town of Sonora, the sheriff chases Teddy along the roofs until, seeing a girl in jail, Teddy lets himself be arrested. Teddy learns the girl, Rita Allison, ( Marjorie Daw ) has money hidden that the sheriff wants to steal. After Lopez saves him from a lynching, Teddy finds the girl's money and holds off the sheriff's gang until a U.S. Marshal arrives, Teddy then returns to New York with Rita, now his fiancée.

This lost film had an amusing prologue, with Douglas Fairbanks appearing in a chef's outfit mixing a cake with action, mystery, adventure, romance and comedy, seasoned with pep and ginger. The finished cake is The Knickerbocker Buckaroo. This was Douglas Fairbank's last film under his contract with Paramount Pictures. After this production, he worked exclusively at United Artists a company he co-founded in 1919 with Mary Pickford, Charles Chaplin and D.W Griffith.
