Douglas Fairbanks parkour 1920

The best free running scene in a movie I’ve seen is Sébastien Foucan in James Bond – Casino Royale.

But check out the “King of Hollywood” back in the early days:

Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. in “The Mark of Zorro“. (1920) Fairbanks was the original action star, performing all of his own stunts. (He was an accomplished gymnast) His films (“Zorro”, “Robin Hood”, “The Three Musketeers”, “The Thief of Bagdad”) are still being remade. Fairbanks’ Zorro was also the inspiration for the character Batman. Set to the music of Tchaikovsky.
