Los Angeles Premiere of MoMA Restoration!

1921, 136 min, USA, Dir: Fred Niblo

This exciting adaptation of the oft-filmed Alexandre Dumas novel stars Douglas Fairbanks as d'Artagnan, who travels to Paris to join the king’s elite guard and joins musketeers Athos, Aramis and Porthos to defend the crown against intrigue in the 17th century. Loaded with lavish costumes and swashbuckling action, the film features such early Hollywood stars as Adolphe Menjou, Eugene Pallette and Barbara La Marr. This major new restoration was created in collaboration with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, based on the original elements that Fairbanks donated to MoMA in 1939.

No filming permitted. | Print courtesy The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Restored by The Museum of Modern Art with support from the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival Film Preservation Fund.
