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 »

Zorro "Sings" Again?
13 September 1999 | by (Gloucester, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The first of the many serials based on the Zorro character released by Republic during the 30s and 40s.

In this one John Carroll (before going on to bigger and better things) plays the hero and his mild-mannered alter ego James Vega. Noah Beery Sr. is wasted as the Marsden, the head bad guy trying to take over the California/Yukatan Railroad. He basically never leaves his office and only appears to radio instructions to his henchman led by Richard Alexander and Robert Kortman.

As usual in Republic serials, the stunt work in this one is great. Yakima Canutt visibly doubles the hero and performs some dangerous horse to train transfers among others.

All in all it isn't bad. The only problem I had with it was the inclusion of a couple of songs for Zorro to warble as he galloped across the range. A tip of the hat to the singing cowboys of the day, I suppose.
