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

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 »
Somebody didn't like this under Review/Comments (evidently incorrectly thinking it violated correcting cast errors in this space.) I wasn't correcting cast errors when I wrote it originally and I'm still not. I'm pointing out the facts regarding the unique way the credits were presented on the first chapter. 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 shown. Additionally, a feature version, running 68 minutes and with an-intended title of "Mysterious Don Miguel", was edited from this serial and released theatrically on September 22, 1938, and this feature version was re-released theatrically again on January 16, 1959 in order to take advantage of and cash in on the popularity of the Zorro television series produced by Disney and starring Guy Williams. . The 1950s syndicated television version of the serial consisted of six twenty-six and one half-minutes chapters running exactly 156 minutes, leaving the television version 56 minutes short of the 212 minutes of the theatrical version. This Comment reference the hstory of this serial contains no spoilers and no data corrections.
