Silent with Live Accompaniment by Mark Herman on the Mighty Wurlitzer • One of Douglas Fairbanks’s greatest roles, this swashbuckler is full of stunts, adventure and excitement.  This was a high-budget, major production in 1926 and was a huge hit with audiences. And who knew they had an early Technicolor process in 1926?! Watch for the now famous (and often copied) sail-sliding scene, and see if you can spot Mary Pickford in her uncredited cameo. This film is rip-roaring fun, and it’s a rare treat to experience it on the big screen with live accompaniment as they did in the 1920s. And of course, September 19th  is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (yep, look it up!) so come celebrate with us at Old Town Music Hall.
