HAPPY BIRTHDAY Douglas Fairbanks May23rd 1883 - December 12th 1939
In honor of Douglas Fairbanks birthday -I’m going to post some of my favorite pictures of Charlie and Doug, who Charlie referred to as the only true friend he had in Hollywood, he continued to miss Doug till the end of his life in 1977, Doug passed in 1939.
I think the kid in this picture is Jackie Coogan, but I am not sure.
Yes this is Jackie Coogan, you can see the set of
“The Kid” in the background.

I love the scene where he grabs her hand and kisses it, how gallant.
The boxing scene absolutely brilliant and hysterical..
The scene where she is unraveling his underclothing I could not figure out why he did not stop her, then reading it was suggested that he was presenting himself as a man of wealth and would not have strings hanging off his clothes, that to me makes perfect sense..
“Private Peat was just that fond of Charlie he even permitted the master of mirth to to come between him and his wife”
