To mark the 300th anniversary of Louis XIV's death, the J. Paul Getty Museum has mounted several exhibits devoted to the Sun King's reign. Learn more about this historical figure at American Cinematheque's screening of the 1929 film The Iron Mask at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre. Charissa Bremer-David, curator of the Getty Museum's Woven Gold: Tapestries of Louis XIV, introduces the film. In The Iron Mask, a rip-roaring adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' series of novels, Douglas Fairbanks stars as D'Artagnan. When the newly born heir to King Louis XIII's kingdom arrives with a (surprise!) 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? All ticketholders will be entered into a drawing for a copy of the Getty exhibition's hardcover catalogue.
