Douglas Fairbanks is one of the most beloved stars of the silent screen and he’s getting a brand new double feature release in HD. Even better, you can win a copy!
A pair of 1910s Fairbanks features, The Half-Breed and The Good Bad Man, will be released on a single disc with scores by Donald Sosin. Doug’s pre-swashbuckler films are delightful showcases for his acrobatic skills and comedy chops. Here’s a preview clip from The Good Bad Man, which also features Bessie Love and Sam De Grasse:
Kino Lorber has generously offered three copies of this exciting release for me to give away. As I always say, the only thing better than silent movies are free silent movies.
Three readers are going to walk away with a copy of this fantastic release. To be eligible, you need:
- A mailing address in the United States
To not have won anything from this site in the last three months
How to enter:
Leave a comment telling everyone what you love about Douglas Fairbanks and you’re entered. If you have never seen one of his films before, just tell us that you are looking forward to getting to know his work. Easy! The comment doesn’t have to be elaborate, we’re just looking for some Fairbanks love.
The contest will close at 11:59 p.m. PST on April 30, 2018. I will randomly draw three winners on May 1, 2018 and they will have seven days to respond. (If no response is received, I’ll go to the next runner-up.) The DVD has a retail value of $19.95 and the Bluray has a retail value of $29.95. Winners will be allowed to select which format they prefer.
My own little Douglas Fairbanks moppet will help draw the three winners. He’s getting a bath for the occasion and everything. (Shhh! Don’t tell him!)
Best of success to everyone!
