Few people have been so important and influential in Hollywood history than Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., and who better than Douglas' niece and family historian Letitia, to relate that story. Rising from a variety of challenges, his extraordinary successes include the dream of all creative people: running their own show. This he did in spectacular fashion founding United Artists in 1919, along with his soon-to-be wife Mary Pickford, Charles Chaplin and D.W. Griffith.

RALPH HANCOCK (1903-1987) began writing for newspapers in St. Louis, Missouri, and became a foreign correspondent from Latin America for various press services. His books include The Compleat Swindler (with Henry Chafetz), Fabulous Boulevard, The Forest Lawn Story (with Hubert Eaton), Puerto Rico: A Success Story, and The Rainbow Republics. LETITIA FAIRBANKS (1913-1992), niece of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, was a writer, painter, and illustrator as well as a mother and wife. She created Princess April Morning-Glory, an elaborately drawn fairy tale inspired by her uncle, in 1941. It was posthumously published in 2013. Born in Provo, Utah, Letitia lived in Los Angeles as a child and adult, and later called Dallas and Salt Lake City home. KELLEY SMOOT (b. 1960) is the daughter of Harold and Letitia Fairbanks Smoot. Following in Letitia's footsteps, Kelley has assumed the mantle of family historian. Like her grand-uncle Douglas, she loves to travel and uses these sojourns to share family stories with book lovers
