This is the only film to accurately depict Zorro as wearing a mask which covers his entire face, as he appeared on the cover of the August 9th, 1919 issue of All-Story Weekly; the magazine which first introduced him in the five part story The Curse of Capistrano. All subsequent film and television depictions which leave Zorro's chin, and usually his entire mouth, exposed are variations of the design first created for Douglas Fairbanks in the film The Mark of ZorroSee more »

For a film that was made back in 1936, this is rather good. It's even more notable than the new Zorro film. First off, if you plan on seeing this, try to see the restored color version, it looks great, and is better than the old creaky black and white prints that have been around forever. This film has some great dialog and acting, and the story is very worthwhile. The restored original color version is available off of Republic video, only problem is that the words "Republic Pictures" are at the top of the screen the whole time.
