This forgettable film is probably impossible to locate in its original form. As many others like it, this Italian/Spanish Hollywood-adventure ripoff, has been subject to drastic cuts, horrible dubbing and rewriting of the credits (in my version, probably re-edited in the seventies, the lead is identified with alias Clint Douglas...ring a bell?). Of course, this might be the reason why my version, renamed "The Mark of Zorro", is nearly uncomprehendable. One might say that it is unfair to rate a movie when only having seen the butchered version, but then, the original material is amateurishly staged, directed and photographed. The only interest this film might generate, is the search for an original full-length version. In other words, only worthy as a subject for film-archeology.
