Summary:
Douglas Fairbanks came from Broadway to the movies in 1915 when high salaries were luring well-known stage actors to the new feature-length pictures. Although most of these performers failed to 'register' on camera and returned to New York, Fairbanks quickly became a supernova. His energetic, optimistic character, his ingratiating smile, his graceful, acrobatic stunts (he did his own), clever writing, and accomplished staging rapidly made Fairbanks one of the most admired stars in the world. Flirting With Fate (1916), a modern-dress comedy, was directed by Christy Cabanne; it stars Fairbanks, Jewel Carmen, and Howard Gaye. Fairbanks is a depressed man who hires another man to kill him, and then changes his mind and must escape the hired murderer.
