    The thing that’s aged most badly for me is how Bill Sr has somehow never seen his son but still expects to order him around. Was that socially acceptable back then? Why? How? Where the fuck was he?

    Masculinity in the American films of the 1920s is fascinating in its complexity and irony. Both comic actors like Keaton and Lloyd, as well as more traditional “action” stars like Fairbanks, frequently hid their grace, initially, in characters that exhibited a certain fecklessness, which made their feats of athletic coordination ultimately surprising. Couple this to the rise of the exotic romantic movie male (i.e, Valentino and Gilbert), we see an interesting tension between the physical acumen of the performer and the social roles in which that ability is often repressed. The comedians and action stars display a prowess that becomes unbound by the conditions of the plot. The romantic stars use a certain effeteness to display a more smoldering, intense sensuality to attract women.
