Douglas Forever. Épiphanie de Douglas Fairbanks

Abstract : Discovered by the French spectators during the Great War, Douglas Fairbanks enjoyed among them a tremendous popularity which had surely no equivalent, in the era of silent pictures, excepted that of Charlie Chaplin. Retired from the screen after the generalisation of talkies, he died prematurely in 1939, causing a strong emotion in the press. Through several articles published immediately or a few years after his death, this paper looks at his memory in France, in order to understand its meanings in relation to the rise of the cinema, the passion for films and the general historical context.
