In honor of April 20th I'll say Mystery of the Leaping Fish, any other day I'd say Thief of Baghdad.

When I got the Blu-ray of THE BLACK PIRATE, I fell in love with the movie all over again. But my current favorite Fairbanks film is the one where the vegetables are chasing him in a dream sequence, and I'm not sure of the title. Laughed my a-- off at that one! (WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL BY, maybe?)

American Aristocracy. Odd choice, but I got the last reel on 8mm as a kid through one of Blackhawk's grab bag deals. If you only have one reel of Doug, it's not a bad one.

Tough call; I like most of the Doug pics listed above.

But as a fave, I might pick THE IRON MASK.

The "the sun is setting" wistfulness of that piece is powerful. And I LOVE the otherwordly ending.

I’ve been taking my time with Tracey’s hardcover (to savor it and make it last as long as possible) and pausing to find each film as she covers them, IF possible. I was so disappointed not to be able to see The Half-Breed and The Good Bad Man, and so I’m ecstatic they are going to be available!

It’s hard to pick a favourite, maybe one day it will be one of these 2 films(!), but so far I think I love **The Mark of Zorro** the most! His groundbreaking entry into swashbuckling and a type of film that no one else had made yet makes it even more incredible to me!

Thanks for this opportunity to win! And to be part of the community! If you hadn’t promoted this on Twitter I never would have found you : )

I love all things Fairbanks, so this is very hard to do! However, I think I will go with THE GAUCHO because I first saw it at the Kansas Silent Film Festival and was simply amazed from the first frame to the last. It was also a real treat watching it with an audience who seemed to really appreciate it.

The Thief of Bagdad is my favorite, but I like anything with Fairbanks in it.

I have 3 or 4 favorites, but The Thief of Bagdad is pretty hard to beat. Plus, I once attended a screening introduced by Doug Jr., so that puts it in a special category all by itself.

Was that the show at MOMA?

No, it was Radio City Music Hall in 1987. Lillian Gish introduced The Wind.

The Wife and I were there.

The live orchestra under Maestro Davis really supported the power of the images.

Great, memorable screening.
