  Filmtracks Modern Soundtrack Reviews
His conservative, clean-cut FBI agent attitude is challenged by his quarter Indian heritage, with the film showing his slowly-developing mystical visions of ghost dancers as he is eventually forced to choose between the law and the Indians.
While the first film had the advantage of conveying the most interesting story, the subsequent entries suffered from a lack of self-importance as the criminal attention turned more towards Ryan and his family rather than events of a global scale.
But the film's unoriginal, drawn out story follows predictable paths of the daughter's coming of age and the nosey sister-in-law/aunt who attempts to first set up the ailing father on a blind date (before eventually trying to steal custody of the girl).

Thousands of people died and millions of people around the world mourned, and using this to promote Bush's (or anyone else's, for that matter) election campaign is doing a huge dishonor to their memories.

 Asian tribute to film falls flat - The Daily Cardinal - Arts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)

 The Film Tribune - The Mark of Zorro (1920)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Hollywood was still largely populated by ramshackle companies, and the film business had recently been liberated from the oppressive presence of the Motion Picture Patents Company, a New York-based trust combining all major film companies of the period with the purpose of enforcing the Edison patent on motion picture equipment.
From a modern audience's viewpoint, the film has lost most of its appeal, since several Zorro films were made afterwards, and at least one is better than this one.
Apart from the ending, which was completely rewritten (and which manages in the film to be more climactic than in the original story) and a few elements which were combined or eliminated altogether, the letter of the printed source has been maintained, even reproducing some precise pieces of dialogue for the film's titles.

 Welcome to Bitter Films
The film's big finale sequence wasn't conceived until midway through production, while individual scenes were redesigned and significantly altered up to the last day of sound mixing.
The film's first cut - clocking in at over twelve minutes and running slow as molasses - was trimmed and re-trimmed in the usual microscopic method (it's always amazing how a scene crosses the line between funny to not funny in less than four frames), and was radically retooled in places.
A few urban legends grew around the film, particularly fueled whenever a lazy reviewer would read a synopsis in lieu of actually watching the cartoon; thus going to press with descriptions of the film as a non-fiction document of rejected commercials.

I saw it as a teenager and still remember it as a "guilty pleasure." I wrote about first watching this film on late night TV back in the '50s and what a lasting impression the score made on me. My story was written as an 80th birthday tribute to Elmer.
Yet his film music will continue to live on...and fortunately a lot of it is available on such labels as Prometheus Records and Film Score Monthly.

When, at the tribute Fonda spoke about how she had helped soldiers to question the Vietnam War, according to the Observer "the room was silent.
Although in actuality the event was a fund-raiser for the Film Center of Lincoln Center, ostensibly the gala festivities were a tribute to Fonda's 30-year, 40-film, motion picture career.
Although the Fonda tribute was good business for the Film Society, it was an outrage for the Society to honor a woman who, during a shooting war, traveled to the bosom of our enemy to further its worldwide propaganda campaign.
