Over the years, there have been many screen adaptations of the story of Alexandre Dumas’ musketeer D’Artagnan, going all the way back to 1903 and portrayed by the likes of Gene Kelly, Don Ameche, Michael York and Chris O’Donnell, but it is Douglas Fairbanks’ 1921 production that set the bar for movie versions of The Three Musketeers as well as for the swashbuckler genre itself. This new 95th anniversary edition brings this classic Fairbanks silent to DVD with a new musical score, authentic color tints and digital restoration.
This 95th anniversary DVD edition presents the film in a restoration originally done by Karl Malkames, newly scanned and digitally restored; this is the first time the Malkames restoration has been available to the public. This DVD release features a brand new theatre organ score by silent film accompanist Ben Model.
