IMPORTED FROM THE USA: DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS JR.

New from our friends at European Film Star Postcards--Imported from the USA: Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

Handsome and distinguished, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (1909-2000) was much more than the son of his superstar father. He was a bright, multi-talent, who excelled in sports and sculpting, was involved in business and was knighted for his war efforts as a lieutenant. And he acted in approximately 100 films or TV shows.

Noblesse oblige

Douglas Elton Ulman Fairbanks Junior was born in New York City in 1909 as the only child of the future Swashbuckler of silent films, Douglas Fairbanks, and Beth Sully, the daughter of a very wealthy cotton mogul. His parents divorced when he was nine years old, and both remarried.
