The World's First Action-Adventure Film!

ACTION! MYSTERY! ROMANCE! GUYS WITH SWORDS!

Featuring the Original 1920 Orchestral score performed by RICK BENJAMIN'S PARAGON ORCHESTRA!

1800s Spanish California is the setting in which Douglas Fairbanks creates the prototype movie action-adventure hero - with surprising humor and athleticism - as "Señor Zorro" ("Mr. Fox"). Slashing his trademark Z on the consciousnesses (and anatomies) of the henchmen of corrupt Governor Alvarado, Zorro leads the way to JUSTICE FOR ALL!

With this new souvenir DVD edition, THE MARK OF ZORRO film is reunited for the first time in 88 years with its authentic musical score, performed live by Rick Benjamin's Paragon Orchestra, and recorded and reproduced in spectacular high-definition Digital Audio. This DVD is a delightful look back at the magic and romance of early Hollywood...Just add popcorn for a night of multi-media fun, the old-fashioned way!

DVD includes bonus materials.

Orchestral soundtrack recorded & produced by 2008 Grammy Award winning "Classical Producer of the Year" Judith Sherman.

This film brought the "legend" of Zorro to the screen for the first time!

Zorro was the first-ever Super Hero - inspiring Superman, Batman, and all the others!

Mark of Zorro was one of the most popular movies of the silent era. And it's a great way for introducing modern viewers to the art of silent film. Kids love it too!

The beautiful 1920 musical score has never been recorded before! It's not available anywhere else.

This special DVD edition - a year in the making - is a Rialto Media exclusive!

Rick Benjamin's PARAGON ORCHESTRA (also known as the "Paragon Ragtime Orchestra") is the world's most active silent film accompaniment group, and since 1986 has played for 557 live silent film screenings across North America and Northern Europe. The Orchestra prides itself in its exclusive use of its 938 title collection of original period (c.1895-1928) silent film scores and music cue sheets. This trove of rare early film music was discovered in a library basement in 1992 by Paragon conductor/pianist Rick Benjamin.

I just finished watching this. The print is Good. The Orchestra is Great.The Original Score is quite good. The Sound is Fantastic. This Orchestra and Conductor should do the rest of the Fairbanks films and more.I have been so thrilled since The Thief of Bagdad with Carl Davis which Came out on Laser Disc also Ben Hur by Davis.

The trouble with most silent films is not because they're silent, but because of the awful and usually disconnected music tracks distributors have put to them. Even if they had to go to a public domain library source I could understand that, as long as they selected pieces approapriate to the scenes. But sometimes you want to scream and I know I do "THIS MUSIC MAKES NO SENSE! DID THEY EVEN WATCH THIS MOVIE?" Fortunately this dvd has the music that makes sense (most of the time.) Sometimes it goes a little over the top where it shouldn't.But at least you know someone in control did watch the movie. Performed by the Paragon Orchestra this soundtrack will increase your viewing pleasure. I know it did mine. I have the piano only version as a bonus feature on my Duncan Regerh Zorro box set and it really makes it painful to watch. As far as the visual goes, the movie is shown mostly in sepia tint with ocassional blue tint and green tint. I have Zorro The Bold Caballero 1936 (a two-strip color film) and The Mark of Zorro 1940 (colorized). See my reviews, but be warned I was not kind. I was honest.

There are many Zorro movies out there and each brings with it a unique character. This version has all the energy and routines of Douglas Fairbanks. In this version Zorro disguises himself with a fake mustache along with the standard mask. He is to wed the daughter (Marguerite De La Motte) of a nobleman (Charles Hill Mailes) that was stripped of his wealth by the governor (George Periolat.)

"Oppression- by its very nature-creates the power that crushes it. A champion arises-a champion of the oppressed- whether it be a Cromwell or someone unrecorded, he will be there. He is born."

Zorro, the Gay Blade
