The name of actor John Carroll is not shown on the original-release, Chapter 1 film credits until it appears on a sixth-page of actor credits; the first page is a full-body image of ZORRO. The second page is split between head-shots of HELEN CHRISTIAN and REED HOWES; the third-fourth-fifth actor credits page features singular shots of DUNCAN RENALDO, NOAH BEERY and RICHARD ALEXANDER. That is followed by an "And" page that lists: John Carroll, Nigel de Brulier, Robert Kortman, Jack Ingram, Roger Williams, Edmund Cobb, Mona Rico, Tom London, Harry Strang and Jerry Frank. None of the role names are listed. See more »

But what to do about it? Protest to the authorities and wait for El Lobo to choose to commit anothre outrage? Oh, I'm sorry, Don Manuel. I guess it's not knowing what to do about it.
Don Manuel Vega [Ch. 1]:
There is something we can do. By signing the California and Yucatan Railroad over to Marsden and allowing him to finish construction of it, I believe El Lobo's raids will be stopped.
But the railroad in Marsden's hands would be ruinous to Mexico.
Don Manuel Vega [Ch. 1]:
Exactly! The welfare of thousands of people depend on our ...

A good effort from Republic,with exciting effects including a horse to train transfer by Yakima Canutt, concerns Noah Berry's efforts to take over a railroad and John Carrols[as Zorro] heroic efforts to stop him. Good location photography,and supporting acting adds to the excitement. Whitney and English direct in fine style.The primitive musical score [used in earlier serials],detracts. Though not the same caliber as Zorros Fighting Legion, this is still a top notch serial,well worth viewing.
