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>

Trivia

The name of 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 Carroll, Nigel De Brulier, Bob 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 »

I enjoyed at 12yrs. old & 55yrs this collected serial.
19 May 1999 | by (Quispamsis, N.B.) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best early serials filled with action furnished by Yakima Canutt on the horse. Although later serials would improve the mask it was also unique in it's scripting. It was well written as serials go. It was mentioned somewhere that a serial was silly. True perhaps but we didn't get that serious with them and enjoyed anyway. This Zorro was entertaining and interesting. One of the best cliffhangers endings was with the train, early in the serial.
