Fun Size Review: Flirting with Fate (1916)

Douglas Fairbanks plays a fellow whose life has gone so wrong that he decides to end it all. Lacking the courage to do the job himself, he hires a hitman to do it for him. But then he gets his girlfriend back and money and success are his! And the hitman can’t be contacted for a cancellation. Oops.

The film suffers from a slow start but quickly gets into the swing of things once Doug decides to hire his hitman. George Beranger walks away with the picture as the goofy hired gunman who never misses. This is just a ton of fun and highly recommended.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The hitman joins the Salvation Army and Doug is saved!

If it were a dessert it would be: Strawberry Margarita Jello Shooters. Fun and ever so slightly wicked.
