Storyline

Don Diego is fighting for the peons against the Commandante. Shortly after the Governor and his daughter Isabella arrive, the Governor is killed and marked with a Z. When Don Diego's identity as Zorro is revealed to Isabella, she has the Commandante arrest him as the killer. But he convinces her the Commandante was the killer as the Z was backwards.

An entertaining "Zorro" with gorgeous color photography.
10 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Within the limits of a lesser budget and a less expansive script, Republic's first color film is by no means an unworthy rival to Fox's later and better-known "The Mark of Zorro". True, you can hardly compare Bob Livingston with Tyrone Power, Heather Angel with Linda Darnell, Emily Fitzroy with Gale Sondergaard or Chris-Pin Martin with Basil Rathbone. Nonetheless, Republic's players do the familiar story proud.

"The Bold Caballero" is ably directed with more than enough fencing, duelling and hair's-breath escapes for the fans, plus a bit of comedy, a couple of songs, and maybe just a mite too much of romance.
