(Fred Niblo, 1920, USA, 97 min.)
Don Diego Vega (Douglas Fairbanks), a foppish son of a wealthy rancher, disguises himself with a mask and cape and becomes the legendary Zorro, defender of the people when corrupt Governor Alvarado (George Periolat) crushes the poor people of Spanish California under his rule. Alvarado sends his henchman Captain Juan Ramon (Robert McKim) and Sergeant Pedro Gonzales (Noah Beery) to kill and unmask Zorro. Ramon and Zorro fight for their lives and for the hand of Lolita Pulido (Marguerite De La Motte). Live piano by Ben Model, one of the nation's leading silent film accompanists.
