The Iron Mask
1929, Photoplay Productions, 95 min, USA, Dir: Allan Dwan
Douglas Fairbanks stars as D’Artagnan in this rip-roaring adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s series of novels. When the newly born heir to King Louis XIII’s kingdom surprisingly has a twin, the baby is smuggled away to Spain to ensure the peaceful future of France. D’Artagnan is enlisted by Cardinal Richelieu to look after the hidden prince. Many years later, after Richelieu’s death, the nefarious Rochefort kidnaps the new king and disguises him with an imposing iron mask, replacing the ruler with his twin. Can D’Artagnan save the abducted king and return the country to stability?
A panel discussion will follow the film, with guests including John Tibbetts (Fairbanks authority and professor of film at the University of Kansas), Laurence Bennett (Oscar-nominated production designer of The Artist), and Patrick Stanbury (Kevin Brownlow’s partner, producer, historian, and film restorationist), moderated by production designer John Muto.
