HERE COMES THE SUN KING
THE IRON MASK

To mark the tercentenary of Louis XIV’s death, the J. Paul Getty Museum has mounted several exhibits of decorative arts associated with the Sun King’s reign, and collaborates with us on this screening.

Introduction by Charissa Bremer-David, curator of the Getty Museum’s “Woven Gold: Tapestries of Louis XIV.” All ticket buyers will be eligible to win a copy of the exhibition's hard cover catalogue.

THE IRON MASK
1929, Photoplay Productions, 95 min, USA, Dir: Allan Dwan

Douglas Fairbanks stars as D’Artagnan in this rip-roaring adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s series of novels. When the newly born heir to King Louis XIII’s kingdom surprisingly has a twin, the baby is smuggled away to Spain to ensure the peaceful future of France. D’Artagnan is enlisted by Cardinal Richelieu to look after the hidden prince. Many years later, after Richelieu’s death, the nefarious Rochefort kidnaps the new king and disguises him with an imposing iron mask, replacing the ruler with his twin. Can D’Artagnan save the abducted king and return the country to stability?
