A Modern MusketeerThe Kennington Bioscope is a regular cinema event featuring live accompaniment to silent films that takes place at the Cinema Museum.

We start the New Year with a Douglas Fairbanks double bill, Allan Dwan’s A Modern Musketeer (1917) and The Good Bad Man (1916), introduced by Kevin Brownlow. In the first, Fairbanks plays a restless young man in rural Kansas who dreams of being a hero like the Three Musketeers. The film was shot on location at several Arizona landmarks, including the Grand Canyon. This is a 35mm presentation, courtesy of Patrick Stanbury. The second, The Good Bad Man with Bessie Love is among Fairbanks’s earliest films to explore themes and ideas that recurred throughout his work — including issues of identity and a passion for the history of the American West.

Silent film with intertitles which may be suitable for the deaf and hard of hearing.
