Setting the stage for the next hundred years of American pop culture, Douglas Fairbanks poses as an ineffectual fop while secretly fighting for justice as a masked "superhero" in early California. The dashing stunts, romance, horseback riding, and swordfighting are expected; but perhaps not the large doses of comedy. A ground-breaking film in its era, The Mark of Zorro stands up brilliantly today as a remarkably entertaining movie.
This screening is the closing film of the Prescott Film Festival, which runs from October 14-17, 2021.
