When the Clouds Roll By (1919)

Running time: 90 mins

Fairbanks plays Daniel Boone Brown, a superstitious but ambitious young New Yorker, who is a pleasure seeking playboy carousing around the city without a care in the world. All this changes when Brown becomes the guinea pig for a series of experiments at the hands of a sadistic psychiatrist. Through various means of control, the mad scientist drives Brown to think he’s losing his mind. Directed by Victor Fleming (The Wizard of Oz) this only recently found feature could well be the best of Fairbanks’ contemporary comedies. Laced with spectacular enthusiasm thanks to Fairbanks wit and energy, When the Clouds Role By is ripe to be rediscovered by new audiences. The Wareham Silent Film Weekender is presented by The Rex Cinema and South West Silents and supported by BFI Film Audience Network.
