Despite having no talking lines in its entire 90-minute run time, the 1920 silent film The Mark of Zorro set the bar for all Zorro versions since. In it, Douglas Fairbanks plays mild-mannered, ineffectual rich man Don Diego Vega who has a secret identity as Zorro, a masked crime-fighter. As defender of the weak and downtrodden, he fights oppression and corrupt officials and sword-fights with dozens of soldiers at once. Fairbanks did all his own stunts, co-wrote the scenario, and introduced a new level of fencing and swordplay in Hollywood movies. See this black-and-white classic as never before at the Schimmel Center with a live piano score from one of the nation’s leading film accompanists, Ben Model.
