Douglas Fairbanks Sr was one amazing guy!! If 3 Muskeers in production/restoration, I hope Adventures of Robin Hood and Mark of Zorro will be next in line...

I would love Robin Hood, for as good as the Errol Flynn version is, I prefer the Fairbanks version even more. It would be awesome to have that version on BluRay as the only time I've watched it was from a beat up print.

and the fact that Alen Hale played Little John in both versions is a mind blower for me!!!

What a fascinating read, thank you the education, and the fact that after a 100 plus years, technology may once again be able to display these at the resolution at which they were filmed. The YouTube views of the shorts are amazing.
