Watch It: The Iron Mask (1929)
The Iron Mask, starring Douglas Fairbanks, was released on February 21, 1929. It’s the first talking role for Fairbanks and it’s also one of those inter-period, half silent, half talkie movies. Typically, the movie has been shown in its silent version.
The Iron Mask stars Fairbanks as d’Artagnan, Marguerite De La Motte as his beloved Constance (who is killed early in the film to protect the secret that the King has a twin brother), Nigel De Brulier as the scheming Cardinal Richelieu, and Ulrich Haupt as the evil Count De Rochefort. William Bakewell appeared as the royal twins.
