Mark of Zorro: The Silent Film Classic Accompanied by the Wurlitzer Organ
In old Spanish California, the oppressive colonial government is opposed by Zorro, masked champion of the people, who appears out of nowhere with flashing sword and an athletic sense of humor, scarring the faces of evildoers with his Mark!
Ask anyone who's attended one of the last two silent movies! They'll tell you THEY LOVED IT!

The Mark of Zorro Invents the Movie Swashbuckler
The success of The Mark of Zorro brought about the era of the swashbuckler. For the rest of the 1920’s Fairbanks starred in lavish period adventure movies, including a turn as the legendary outlaw in Robin Hood (Allan Dwan 1922). A sequel to Zorro appeared in 1925 with Fairbanks playing father and son in Don Q: Son of Zorro (Donald Crisp). The Mark of Zorro was remade in 1940 with Tyrone Power in the leading role.
