~Plot Synopsis~
The Good Bad Man is at once a straight western and a gentle spoof of the genre. Douglas Fairbanks
plays a fellow who calls himself "Passin' Through." Orphaned at birth, Our Hero grows up to be a
Robin-Hood-like bandit, robbing the rich so that he can finance a home for unwanted children. In
this guise, he meets Bud Fraser (Sam DeGrasse), the man who killed his father. Bessie Love plays the
obligatory heroine, who frankly hasn't much to do in the proceedings. The Good Bad Man was
directed by frequent Fairbanks collaborator Allan Dwan; it was photographed by Victor Fleming, who
later became an excellent director in his own right (one of his 1930s films was a little something called
Gone with the Wind).
