Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin Wall Street New York 1918

Wall Street, New York City, 1918

In this photo, Douglas Fairbanks raises a vertical Charlie Chaplin in the air, at the foot of the old Sub-Treasury building (now Federal Hall National Memorial), during a rally to promote Liberty bonds. Liberty bonds were sold to help support the United States World War I effort.

A year before this in 1917, Fairbanks and Mary Pickford joined Charlie Chaplin in selling war bonds by train across the United States. At the time, Fairbanks and Chaplin were the highest paid movie stars in Hollywood.

Douglas Fairbanks, nicknamed "The King of Hollywood", was born on May 23, 1883 and died on December 12, 1939.
