Fun Size Review: A Modern Musketeer (1917)

Douglas Fairbanks is a human hurricane in this action-comedy. Obsessed with adventure novels and too wild for his home in Kansas, he finds adventure and romance in Arizona.

Villain to vanquish? Check! Damsel in distress? Check! Things to leap from? Check and check! Fairbanks’ stunts are fun and his personality is first rate! The Grand Canyon scenery is an added bonus. Lightweight but well worth the view.

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

Doug’s manic behavior saves the day, wins the fair lady’s affection, and so forth.

If it were a dessert it would be: Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans. A bundle of energy wrapped in a sweet package.

Availability: Released on DVD in Flicker Alley’s Douglas Fairbanks box set.
