"...Fairbanks' Zorro will forever be the standard....[Sets] the bar exhilaratingly high..." -- Rating: A

Product Description:

Don Diego Vega, a young Spanish nobleman, watches with horror as the rich landowners mistreat their peons. The poor workers can get no restitution, for the corrupt government turns a blind eye to this cruelty. Finally, the outraged Vega devises a scheme to right the wrongs he sees: during the day he poses as a cowardly fop... but at night, he battles evil as the masked avenger, Zorro. Even though it's silent, this film is generally regarded as one of Fairbanks' best swashbucklers. It set the stage for the subsequent Zorro films as well as the successful television series of the late 1950's.

Description by Image Entertainment:

The Mark of Zorro is the swashbuckling story of a nineteenth century Robin Hood intent on freeing his beloved San Juan Capistrano from an evil Governor and his lecherous Captain. Don Diego Vega (Douglas Fairbanks) must assume the masked identity of Zorro to convince the Caballeros to join him in his quest to save the city from certain ruin.
