WILD AND WOOLLY
1917, 72 min, USA, Dir: John Emerson

In possibly his best pre-swashbuckling comedy, Douglas Fairbanks stars as a young New Yorker who longs for the excitement of the Old West. Energetically directed by John Emerson, with a witty script and wryly ironic intertitles by husband and wife Emerson and Anita Loos, and cinematography by Victor Fleming.

8mm screening in the 80-seat Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian. Click here for more information.

Tickets are available at the box office or online here: $11 General, $7 American Cinematheque Members.

Wild and Woolly (1917), Fairbanks' second independent production, is the finest of the Fairbanks-Emerson-Loos collaborations and perhaps the best of the 13 films he made for Artcraft. It was also one of Fairbanks' personal favorites. "I really am living this picture," he said during production. From his first appearance, in which his character is enthusiastically enjoying a campfire repast (the camera slowly pulls back to reveal the visual comedy of the situation: it is a playtime façade set up in his Park Avenue bedroom), to the final frantic roundup in Arizona, Fairbanks has such a rollicking, rowdy good time that it is difficult not to get caught up in the sheer delight of his performance....

The film was an enormous success as a comedy-western and time has proven it to be one of the most enduring and endearing of the Fairbanks comedies.
