starring Douglas Fairbanks and Alma Reubens
March, 1917

The fact that Douglas Fairbanks is the star of this is sufficient proof that it's good. As the extremely susceptible, quick-tempered son of the Stars and Stripes in Mexico, "Electricity Doug" does the best work of his picture career. It is mad, merry scramble of lovely senoritas, tempest-in-tea-pot revolutions, kidnapped Presidentes, and a strong, husky son of the U.S.A. to wave the Stars and Stripes as the curtain goes down on the last and happy finale. Alma Reubens is a lovely and extremely capable "opposite" to Mr. Fairbanks.
