About The Films: In an attempt to brand himself as a serious actor, the smiling swashbuckler Douglas Fairbanks starred in The Half-Breed (1916), a Western melodrama written by Anita Loos and directed with flair by Allan Dwan. Fairbanks stars as Lo Dorman, who has been ostracized from society because of his mixed ethnicity – his Native American mother was abandoned by his white father. When Lo catches the eye of the rich white debutante Nellie (Jewel Carmen), he becomes a target for the racist Sheriff Dunn (Sam De Grasse), who wants to break them up and take Nellie for his own. This love triangle becomes a quadrangle with the arrival of Teresa (Alma Rubens), who is on the run from the law. Through fire and fury Lo must decide who and what he truly loves. The Good Bad Man (1916), starring Douglas Fairbanks was directed by Allan Dwan (50 minutes). Special Features include: Amazing Tales from the Archives: Restoring The Half-Breed (1916),  Audio commentaries for The Half-Breed and The Bad Good Man by Tracey Goessel and Robert Byrne and more.

You can visit Kino Lorber on their website, on Twitter at @KinoLorber or on Facebook.

  1. Billy Slobin says:

    I have always loved Fairbanks Sr.!
    He was an epic swashbuckler, a great athlete and a pioneer in helping create United Artists.
    I love his action rolls in Three musketeers, Zorro…
    Keep up the great work on your blog AnnMarie!

  2. Garrett Solomon says:

    I can’t say that I have seen anything from (any) Douglas Fairbanks, but I still think that it would be great to win a silent-film double-feature Blu-ray set in the first place.

  3. Smashingstars says:

    One of the greatest things about Doug Sr is how much fun he had making movies, and how that joy just pops right off the screen! I think it’s the most obvious in Black Pirate.and Robin Hood but you see it in all his films. I know Half-Breed is kind of silly in the way all 100yo films look silly nowadays, but the perfs are surprisingly modern, especially the first tender scene between Doug and Alma Reubens — people don’t give Doug Sr. as much credit for being a good actor as they do for his swashbuckling!

  4. Cher Bibler says:

    I have seen the Thief of Baghdad and Zorro and the Three Musketeers, and I really enjoyed them. I just got done watching a Mary Pickford bio on youtube, as well as the 10 part early Hollywood series. Would love to see more!

  5. Javier Valverde says:

    What I love about Douglas Fairbanks Sr. is his swashbuckling skills in his films that brought excitement and adventure to audiences of the 1920s.

    I don’t know much about Douglas Fairbanks Jr. I sorta have a “Men in Tights” parody picture in my mind. I’m the white mother of adult bi-racial (Chinese-White) children and recently discussions of white-washing and yellow-face casting and, generally, historical and present-day issues of treatment of racial and ethnic diversity in media have lit up our conversations. So…you had me at the title “THE HALF-BREED”. I’d love to see how Fairbanks and Loos handled this subject.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Thank you for entering Gloria, and for you great reason. I’m curious to see that myself. Good Luck 🙂

  7. steve carmody says:

    I’ve only seen Douglas Fairbanks in the “Thief of Baghdad”. I’ve read a lot about Fairbanks and his career. I would really like to see him in different roles.

    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

  8. Emma Stone says:

    Douglas Fairbanks played Robin Hood, arguably has a greater filmography than even Buster Keaton, and is a screen legend. How could I not?

  9. Patty Hess says:

    I’m not familiar with Douglas Fairbanks Sr.’s work but am more familiar with his son’s, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr’s work. The reason I want to try and win this double feature is so I can became more familiar with his work. And I think that these two features would be a good start.

  10. Nancy says:

    With his charisma and athleticism, he is just a joy to watch!

  11. David Hollingsworth says:

    What I loved about Fairbanks (Sr.) was his amazing physicality and sense of timing. It also didn’t hurt that he was charismatic and moving.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi David, I can’t find your tweet. Please confirm that you tweeted or let me know if you no longer have a twitter account. Thanks!

  12. Stuart Cook says:

    I have always enjoyed Douglas Fairbanks’ work, especially in THE BLACK PIRATE and THE THIEF OF BAGDAD. He really molded into each of his characters. I have not had much opportunity to see his work prior to 1920, so this set would really be a treat.
    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

  13. Mary Mallory says:

    I love Doug and have seen virtually all of his silents. The Half Breed has one of the most iconic images in films, an interesting look at how Native Americans were treated early on. This showed at the SFSFF a year or two ago and it looked great.

  14. I’m not as familiar with Douglas Sr’s work as I am his son but I would love to see “The Half Breed” because I’ve heard so much about the painstaking restoration from Fairbanks Sr. historian and archivist Tracy Goessel. This should be a very very interesting set of films and Douglas Sr. definitely deserves to be more well-known and his work appreciated.

  15. What u live best about Fairbanks is his incredible good taste in seeing the talent and intelligence of Mary Pickford. I also enjoy his flair and swagger in his films. Also, I need to up my silent film game as a film professor!

    Thanks for this opportunity. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  16. Patty Hess says:

    I’m not too familiar with Douglas Fairbanks Sr. but I just know that I need some Fairbanks in my life.
