THE AMERICANO (1916) and RARE OUTTAKES FROM "THE GAUCHO" and "DON Q. SON OF ZORRO"
THE AMERICANO (1916)
and RARE OUTTAKES
The always exuberant Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. (in one of his early starring five-reelers for Triangle - directed by John Emerson) plays a young, untried mining engineer sent from New York City to far-away Paragonia to oversee business relations. Doug arrives just in time to uncover a coup involving the imprisonment of the Presidente - who's daughter is about to be forced into a marriage with the head of the Army. All of this, of course, is no match for the ever-smiling, ever-resourceful Doug who will, no doubt, save the day - it's HOW he does it that makes the picture!
This edition includes a reel of extremely rare production "rushes" from two of Fairbanks' later Latin American excursions (THE GAUCHO and DON Q. SON OF ZORRO.)
Original music scores composed and performed by Ben Model!
Duglas Fairbanks, Alan Hale, Alma Rubens and Lupe Valez
