From the Publisher
"A literate, intelligent, and thoughtful study of the films of a cinema legend whose characterizations and unique personality strongly influenced the new American century."
--Anthony Slide, author of Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine: A History of Star Makers, Fabricators, and Gossip Mongers
"Douglas Fairbanks and the American Century is a treasure. It stands as the definitive examination of Fairbanks's career, insightfully reassessed and sumptuously illustrated."
--Gary R. Edgerton, professor and dean of the College of Communication at Butler University and co-editor of the Journal of Popular Film and Television
"An essential for any silent film fan's bookshelf, the analysis of the ever-active, ageless Doug should be required reading for anyone who loves the movies."
--Tracey Goessel, author of the upcoming He Comes Up Smiling: The Life and Work of Douglas Fairbanks
"The authors have made careful use of recent feminist scholarship about masculinity so that their book is both an homage and a careful discussion of what Fairbanks's screen image means for those interested in twenties America, and the importance of mass culture."
--David Culbert, John L. Loos Professor of History, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, and longtime editor of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
