From Lichfield to Liverpool and from Kuala Lumpur to Washington, Carl Davis keeps up a hectic schedule of travel, presenting a variety of programmes to packed houses – Bond to Beatles – and of course his own uniquely programmed concerts along with silent film presentations.
Closer to home Davis presents Allan Dwan’s 1929 The Iron Mask in Symphony Hall, Birmingham on 3 December. It’s a silent swashbuckling adventure starring Douglas Fairbanks, one of the all-action stars of the pre-talkie era.  There’s a scheming Cardinal, an evil count, kidnappings, and plenty of sword-fighting – all the ingredients needed for a great sequel to The Three Musketeers.
