Indianapolis Museum of Art

Before Antonio Banderas (who starred in 1998’s “The Mask of Zorro”), before Guy Hamilton (star of the hit 1957 TV series), and even before Tyrone Powell (who starred in “The Mark of Zorro” in 1940), there was Douglas Fairbanks, who swashed and buckled his way through the 1920 silent hit that introduced filmgoers to the other caped crusader. It’s being presented here with live musical accompaniment by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, juicing up the soundtrack of an adventure film (rather than a comedy) for the first time. I’ll be there, providing an introduction and soaking up the sights and sounds. Details here
