In many respects this dual role is the most legitimate piece of acting that Douglas Fairbanks has done for the screen. His Don Diego Vega is a distinct character creation, in marked contrast to the quick and fearless Zorro. The familiar Fairbanks personality is preserved in both, but each character is given sufficient touches to preserve its local color, and the romantic nature of the story is brought out in every way possible. It would seem that this picture is a testing ground for the star’s ambition to play the D’Artagnan of Dumas, and that he has demonstrated his right to make the attempt. The writer of the scenario and the director have been mindful of the athletic prowess of Mr. Fairbanks, and he has been given openings without number to hurl himself over, through, on to and up to all kinds of obstacles with his usual exhilarating dash, and to show his horsemanship to the best advantage.
