The Eagle is a 1925 film starring Rudolph Valentino. When the father of Vladimir Dubrovsky, a young Russian is murdered, his son becomes The Black Eagle to avenge the death. Leading a band of horse-riding highwaymen, The Black Eagle, is thought to be a brigand by the law officials. Based on the portrayal of Zorro by Douglas Fairbanks in an earlier film, The Black Eagle is an engaging hero. He has the skills of a human well-trained in combat, master of stealth and expert equestrian.
