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.

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!
