Makes today's Theater's look drab and sterile!
Betcha any one of those large posters would buy you an awesome Model T these days and then some!!!
That was the first film about Zorro, in 1920.
The DVD cover might show the same poster?
Those posters, bills and banners would bring a pretty penny today.
More than a pretty penny!!
Here's Oroville's State Theatre box office dolled up for the film "California." While we still have the theatre, the box office was taken out in a 1960s "modernizing"--we also lost the wonderful flag sign and the surrounding marquee. Someday a recreation will replace them!
The fellow standing at the door dressed as Zorro would be arrested today because he has a sword without a permit!
Another great picture Jay.
Get your very own restored version, in early Technicolor, with the original music score done by a fellow forum member Rick Benjamin and his Paragon Ragtime Orchestra
We have a great theatre out where I live in cobleskill NY. "The Park Theatre" was opened early in the depression. Tickets were 5 cents. Today the theatre's screen and sound has been updated but all the banister work and seats are all original (re upholstered though). The entrance to the theatre is lined with original poster's of films they aired, including Sound of music, cinderella, sleeping beauty, Dumbo, etc. And hey, tickets today are only 5 dollars, a drink is a dollar twenty five, and popcorn is two dollars! Can't beat it.
Dang, I had this confused with Fairbank's "The Black Pirate" movie, that was done in Technicolor.
"The Mark of Zorro" is in beautiful blank & white.
One of my all-time favorite movies! I have seen it on the big screen four or five times. I have it on tape somewhere, but haven't watched it for a few years. I also have seen the sequel "Don Q, Son of Zorro" a few times. It also stars Douglas Fairbanks. Both of them are fantastic!
Drive carefully, and enjoy,W2
