Storyline

The California-Yucatan Railroad, being built for the good of Mexico, is under siege by a gang of terrorists hoping to force its sale; no one can prove their connection to profiteer Marsden. Manuel Vega, aged co-owner, calls in the aid of his nephew James, great-grandson of the original Zorro. Alas, James seems more adept at golf than derring-do; but after he arrives, Zorro rides again! Can one black-clad man on horseback defeat a gang supplied with airplanes and machine guns? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

In Episode 7, Zorro gives Joyce Andrews the revolver from his left holster and then he is upstairs and the building is on fire there. In Episode 8, Zorro escapes from the burning building and now has both revolvers in the holsters, but has had no contact with Joyce Andrews since he gave her one of his revolvers. In Episode 8, the water flow is restored after the villains had shut off the valve. But Zorro had left the control room without opening the valve. See more »

Quotes

Joyce Andrews: Murdered! Brutally murdered by this fiend who calls himself El Lobo. He isn't human I tell you. An old man and a little boy - no employee of this company is safe!
Phillip Andrews: But sis...
Joyce Andrews: Oh, if there were only a man like your great-uncle Zorro, Don Manuel. He would know what to do with such as El Lobo

Good early Republic western action
27 July 1999 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Good early Republic actioner. Only one cheat at a chapter ending, where you see Zorro fall from a building, but the next chapter shows him still hanging there. Carroll is best, Renaldo is fun, and Yakima Cannutt's stunt work is first rate. If only they didn't have Zorro SING!
