Storyline

In the 1840s, the foppish Don Diego de la Vega returns from Spain to his family in California to find that his father has been replaced as ruler of the region by the cruel Don Luis Quintero. Despite being a skilled swordsman, Diego downplays his skills in front of the evil Captain Esteban and shows himself to be rather a clown in front of his family. However, Diego secretly picks up the sword of justice as the masked hero Zorro and fights to return justice to the region and his people. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Don Diego/Zorro: Yes.
Theresa: How... how did you get here?
Don Diego/Zorro: Well, a man can do many things if he must.
Theresa: [gasps and smiles] I must be dreaming, you are Zorro!
Don Diego/Zorro: [puts finger to lips] I'm sorry I had to decieve you tonight but to accomplish what I must I had to decieve many people.
Theresa: And I suppose you came to tell me that asking for my hand was merely part of the game?

Entertainment with a capital "E"

I saw this film on TV recently. The Daily Mail had listed it as one to miss, but I'm glad I taped it. I had previously seen the new version with Anthony Hopkins, and this one compares quite favourably with it. Gilbert Roland is fantastic playing both the role of Don Diego, where he puts on an air of bored arrogance. This contrasts brilliantly with his role of Zorro when he dresses up with the mask. The action is more than first rate: it is sublime. It doesn't rely on special effects, but on acting and style. Probably the best TV movie I have ever seen...
