Swoon on a Saturday: Douglas Fairbanks Junior

Douglas Elton Fairbanks, Jr., KBE, DSC 

Born: December 9, 1909, New York City, New York, United States
Died: May 7, 2000, New York City, New York, United States


Elton? Really?


I have always swooned over the delectable being that is Douglas Fairbanks Junior. 
In fact I had a framed picture of him as a young man hanging on the wall. 
Said picture would rattle of its own accord. 
Fancifully I told myself the picture was haunted. 
Intrigued I swapped the picture for another in the same frame and it failed to rattle. 
I put Douglas back in his rightful place ... the rattling continued.


  1. That's funny about the rattling. I've seen several of this hunk's... um, man's movies. Quite a charmer.

    And nobody should have to apologize for their odd middle name. Mine is Arno. Ouch!

    1. It threw me as I connect Elton with Elton John only! I have never heard the name Arno before x

  2. Yep! :) Especially when he was channeling a more rugged look. No matter what though, his hair could do no wrong in my books and is one of my favourite elements of his strikingly handsome appearance.

    1. He is in a pretty perfect package isn't he x
