With unlimited access to his legacy on film Clara and Julia Kuperberg will tell the life story of Douglas Fairbanks in a first person narration, drawing on film clips and newsreel footage to show that he invented a style that would be emulated for decades. No “Superman” without a Fairbanks signature pose, no “Batman” without the mark of Zorro, no “Mickey Mouse” without Fairbanks and Chaplin as Walt Disney once admitted himself. He was even thinking of Fairbanks while creating Prince Charming in “Snow White”. Today, when Johnny Depp plays his role in “Pirates of the Caribbean”, or Jean Dujardin in “The Artist”, the actor they are paying tribute to like generations of stars before them, is Douglas Fairbanks.
