THE SILENT TREATMENT: Don Q Son of Zorro

For this month’s SILENT TREATMENT, Cinefamily presents the RARELY SEEN sequel to The Mark of Zorro: Don Q, Son of Zorro!

Loosely based on a 1909 novel (Don Q.’s Love Story, a mother and son collaboration), this 1925 film begins with a careless mistake that unleashes a glut of drama of aristocratic proportions, complete with runaway bulls, duels, grand society balls, and lots of tumultuous romance. Douglas Fairbanks, aka “The King of Hollywood,” dominates the film, producing and starring in a double role, spookily playing both father and son (Don Q and Zorro)!

This special screening will be introduced by Fairbanks’ biographer Jeffrey Vance, and will feature live accompaniment from Cliff Retallick!

Dir. Donald Crisp, 1925, 35mm, 111 min.
