~The Mollycoddle~
1920
~Plot Synopsis~
After finishing his first costumer swashbuckler The Mark of Zorro, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. reverted to his
standard formula with the contemporary action comedy The Mollycoddle. Doug plays the title character,
a dandified American who returns to his home in the Wild West after being educated in England.
Suspected of being little more than a pantywaist, Doug proves his grit by capturing notorious desperado
Wallace Beery. Fairbanks and Tom Geraghty co-adapted The Mollycoddle from a short story by Harold
McGrath. He followed this picture with another modern comedy, The Nut, then devoted the rest of the
1920s to such period pictures as Robin Hood, The Thief of Baghdad and The Gaucho.
