The Mark of Zorro/ Don Q, Son of Zorro - In The Mark of Zorro, his first full-blown effort at the costume thriller, Fairbanks portrays Don Diego Vega, a comically effete young nobleman with a taste for tassled sombreros and juvenile silk-hanky magic tricks. But when danger calls, Diego swathes himself in black, straps on a well-honed sword and storms the countryside as the mysterious Zorro, slicing his initial into the faces of the "sentinels of oppression," pausing only to boldly romance the woman (Marguerite De La Motte) to whom his shy alter-ego can hardly summon the courage to speak. Returning to the legend that inspired his first swashbuckling adventure, Fairbanks appears in Don Q, Son of Zorro. Don Cesar De Vega (Fairbanks) crosses swords with a vicious member of the Queen's Guard (Donald Crisp, who also directed), and steals the affection of a young heiress (Mary Astor). When the officer frames the young upstart for murder, Don Cesar fakes his own death and retreats into the crumbling ruins of the family castle where he plots his vengeance. The Three Musketeers - D'Artagnan is a naive and ambitious farm boy who yearns to join the Musketeers, the elite regiment of guards under King Louis XIII (Adolphe Menjou). Riding into 1625 Paris on the back of a weathered plowhorse, the young rapscallion quickly wins the respect and friendship of the Musketeers' most valiant trio in a breathtaking display of acrobatic swordsmanship. When Queen Anne (Mary McLaren) is maneuvered into a political scandal by the devious Cardinal Richelieu (Nigel De Brulier), D'Artagnan and his bons hommes embark on a treacherous race across France, to England and back to regain a precious brooch that will save the queen's honor and the future of their nation. Robin Hood - As the Earl of Huntington, Fairbanks epitomizes the valiant, loyal knight immortalized in Arthurian legend, gently wooing the virtuous Lady Marian (Enid Bennett). When King Richard, Huntington and a band of warriors embark on a crusade to Palestine, Richard's conniving brother John (Sam De Grasse) assumes the throne and turns the once-idyllic empire into a Dante-esque sty of corruption. In the darkest hour, however, Huntington shirks off his noble demeanor and is transfigured into Robin Hood, a hyper-animated avenger who, just a few leaps ahead of his merry men, breathlessly storms the battlements in pursuit of Prince John, the High Sheriff of Nottingham (William Lowery) and all who stand in the way of justice. The Thief Of Baghdad - A spectacular accomplishment in production design and special effects, Raoul Walsh's The Thief of Baghdad is a bold Arabian adventure starring Douglas Fairbanks as a carefree pickpocket who turns his appealing brand of mischievous thievery toward the attainment of happiness... and an exotic Princess (Julanne Johnston). The Black Pirate - The sole survivor of a ship pillaged by buccaneers, Michel (Fairbanks) poses as the mysterious Black Pirate and infiltrates the nest of bandits. He mounts an elaborate ploy to recover the brigands' treasure, reclaim the ship and rescue the divine Princess (Billie Dove) held captive there. Like a Robert Louis Stevenson adventure come to life, The Black Pirate ripples with customary intrigue and a rapid succession of brilliantly inventive stunts that never fail to astound.
