Johnston McCulley Rides Again!
29 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the Zorro picture you have when you're not having a Zorro picture. How come? It's written by Johnston McCulley, so the setting of Spanish California is the same for a start. It's also an impersonation picture which re-uses Mr McCulley's favorite plot device -- unfortunately sans disguise, so we always know who the good guy is and who the bad guy is right from the start. The casting also helps squash any illusions that the plot may hold a few surprises. Clean-cut Johnnie Walker is obviously the good guy, black-visaged Eddie Gribbon obviously the bad. But so far, so good. The real disappointment of the movie is Shannon Day. If this frump is 26, she should sue the director, the photographer, the costumer and her make-up man. She looks so plain awful -- or so awful plain -- she makes a plot that was rather shaky to begin with, seem like absolute nonsense. Director William K. Howard does his best to rescue the movie -- and succeeds some of the time!
