Silent screen superstar Douglas Fairbanks appears in one of his most legendary roles as a seemingly idiotic fop who is really the courageous vigilante Zorro, fighting to protect the oppressed!

In The Mark of Zorro, the nobleman Don Diego Vega (Douglas Fairbanks) returns home to Spanish California from Spain to find the tyrannical governor Alvarado threatening the people. Outwardly assuming the persona of an effeminate fop, Diego dons a mask and cape to take up a double life as the avenging Zorro, battling tyranny and robbing from the rich to give to the poor. Swordplay, rapier wit, and romance abound in this original swashbuckler. Based on “The Curse of Capistrano,” a short story by Johnston McCulley, the film became a smash hit. Fairbanks, long a staple of silent romantic comedies, transformed himself into an action star because of this role. (USA, 1920, 107 min, NR | Dir: Fred Niblo)
