Watch It: The Iron Mask (1929)

Posted by Brandy Dean February 21, 2013 3 Comments 5666 views

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.

The best part? You can watch it right now!

    You know, this was the first Douglas Fairbanks movie I ever saw — but not the last — and I’ve been a devoted fan ever since. One of my all-time favorites.

      I do believe it was the first Fairbanks I saw too! We’re Fairbanks twins. 🙂
