Douglas Fairbanks stars as Jeff Hillington, the son of railroad magnate who only dreams of the plains and adventures of the American wild west. Unknown to Hillington, the town’s ‘wild’ days are long gone and it is an orderly and civilized place now. The townsmen, not wanting to lose a rich potential resident, contrive to make over the town to suit the young man’s fantasy. In this great comedy, written by the fantastic Anita Loos, Wild and Wolly showcases the many talents of Fairbanks as an action star as well as a comedy actor. Live musical accompaniment by Meg Morley. Restoration from Film Preservation Associate France, Paris. The Wareham Silent Film Weekender is presented by The Rex Cinema and South West Silents and supported by BFI Film Audience Network.
