The mysterious Zorro - who he is, nobody knows. Appearing as if from nowhere, clad all in black, sword flashing, he defends the weak and strikes fear into the hearts of villains throughout the land as he carves his trademark ‘Z’ into the cheek of his opponent.
The Hollywood adventure movie began here, with the greatest swashbuckler of them all, Douglas Fairbanks. The Mark of Zorro is silent cinema at its most dashing and romantic.
