DON Q, SON OF ZORRO

(1925, Donald Crisp) Zorro’s son Don César, off to Universidad in Madrid, is accused of a murder actually committed by aristocratic slimeball Donald Crisp (directing himself), then goes undercover to prove his innocence and rescue a very young Mary Astor; the original “fox,” dad Don Diego, comes back from California to lend a bullwhip. Doug’s tour de force double role-playing helped make this one of his top money-makers.
Approx. 111 min. 35mm.

REVIEWS

“A picture that has been designed for the Fairbanks fans… it is Fairbanks as the public wants Fairbanks… There isn’t a lagging minute of the picture.”
Variety (1925)

“It is full of over-seeing and over-hearing and dark doings. As it is laid in the beautiful and mythical Spain of romance, it has the advantage of taking place in a rich and gorgeous background. And Mr. Fairbanks, in Spanish clothes doing a Spanish dance, is a sight to behold. In fact, in all of his pantomime, he’s really more of a dancer than an actor.”
Photoplay (1925)

“Clearly evident in Don Q, Son of Zorro is the shift away from the athleticism of the earlier stunts in favor of movement that accentuated Fairbanks’s grace.”
– Jeffrey Vance
