The Mark of Zorro (Douglas Fairbanks, 1920) – The silent original – Hollywood’s very first Action-Adventure movie! Douglas Fairbanks thrills audiences with swordplay, romance, and just a bit of comedy. Bringing the film to life with authentic movie accompaniment is Rick Benjamin’s Paragon Ragtime Orchestra in collaboration with Resident Theater Organist, David Peckham on the Clemens Center’s Marr & Colton Theatre Organ! The Mark of Zorro is a “tinted black and white” film. It is mainly black and white, but there are some scenes that are tinted into blue to represent night, orange during the romantic scenes, and so on. Show Length: 2 hours with a brief intermission. There is also a pre-film Overture and an Exit March following the finale of the film, all part of the authentic ’20s Movie Palace presentational style!
