Kick off 2021 in style with Doug Fairbanks!
Preserved by SFSFF, Cinémathèque Française, and the Film Preservation Society in 2013, The Half-Breed was directed by the great Allan Dwan. This western drama is set among the redwoods and was filmed in part near Boulder Creek (with Victor Fleming behind the camera!). Based on a story by Bret Harte and adapted by Anita Loos, The Half-Breed tells the story of Lo Dorman (Douglas Fairbanks), born of a Native American mother and white father. A departure from his usual effervescent persona, Fairbanks’s sensitive portrayal of the outcast Dorman condemns racism and hypocrisy.
The Half-Breed will be available to SFSFF members online for 10 days, starting at 8am on Friday, January 1. You will be able to view the film on this page.
