~The Lamb~
1915
~Plot Synopsis~
Though its script is credited to D.W. Griffith, The Lamb is actually a film adaptation of Winchell Smith's
Broadway play The New Henrietta. In his screen debut, Douglas Fairbanks plays a wealthy wastrel who is
framed in a stock swindle. To prove his innocence, Fairbanks is plunked into several situations requiring
him to display both his athletic and intellectual prowess. Seena Owen plays the girl who knew Fairbanks
was a stalwart fellow all along. The Lamb was remade in 1921 as The Saphead, with Buster Keaton
assuming the Douglas Fairbanks role.
