HIS PICTURE IN THE PAPERS
1916, 62 min, USA, Dir: John Emerson

Douglas Fairbanks plays Pete Prindle, the son of a highly successful processed food magnate in this sassy satire about fame and advertising that, 100+ years later, still feels contemporary. Penned by the one and only Anita Loos (WILD AND WOOLLY, GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES).
