LOC Theater: THE MARK OF ZORRO (United Artists, 1920):

Saturday, March 28, 2015

Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Douglas Fairbanks Sr. changed his screen persona from a cheerful romantic comedian to what became the prototype for a new kind of hero - the swashbuckling adventurer, with The Mark of Zorro, which he also produced and co-wrote. Based on a short story by Johnston McCulley, "The Curse of Capistrano," this was the first time the masked hero Zorro had appeared on screen. Set in California in the early 19th century, the story opens as Don Diego Vega (Fairbanks) returns from Spain to find his family being menaced by a corrupt governor and his henchmen. While Don Diego appears on the surface to be an effete dilettante, his behavior is really an elaborate ruse. In reality, he is Zorro, a master swordsman who has dedicated his life to fighting evil tyrants. Directed by Fred Niblo, this silent classic also stars Marguerite De La Motte and Noah Beery. Making its Packard Campus Theater debut, the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra will provide live musical accompaniment based on the original 1920 theater orchestra score compiled for the film by James C. Bradford. The orchestra is a direct recreation of the standard 11-and-piano theater orchestra of the early 1900s. The group uses original period instruments, consisting of five strings, two woodwinds, three brass instruments, percussion and a conductor (Andrew Greene) doubling as a pianist. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
