Better than the recent Zorro film.
18 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

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.
