Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Licensing
A Well Tailored Hero
December 9, 1909 – May 7, 2000
Although he appeared in about a hundred films, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. never really intended to take up acting as a career. But the environment he was born into and the circumstances naturally led him to be a film actor. A talented writer, Fairbanks wrote humorous pieces for Vanity Fair about the Hollywood scene. His first marriage was to Joan Crawford and at the heart of Tinseltown, he set up his own production company, Criterion Films, in 1935. As chairman of the charity CARE, Fairbanks organized food aid for war-torn countries. However, he returned to acting with ‘Sinbad The Sailor’, and wrote 1948’s ‘The Exile’ – both the kind of movies his father, Fairbanks Sr., would have been proud. Concentrating on production, Fairbanks made and presented the TV anthology ‘Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Presents’ through the early 1950s.
