Public Domain Theater: The Mark of Zorro (& “The Mechanical Monsters”)

Welcome to Public Domain Theater, your home for the wonderful world of films that have (in the United States, at least) fallen into the public domain, and are free for everyone to see!

If you’re reading this, that means you’re not out seeing Avengers: Endgame right now. What can this feature offer to compete with the biggest superhero movie of all time? Well, how about what might be, depending on your definition, the first superhero movie of all time: the 1920 swashbuckler The Mark of Zorro! (a.k.a. young Bruce Wayne’s favorite movie)

If that’s not enough, we’ve also got the second of the Fleischer Studios Superman cartoons, “The Mechanical Monsters”!

So retire to your secret lair, take off your cape and tights, and sit back and enjoy some rip-rousing superhero action!
