Tongue in cheek romp, clever action shots, slap stick comic relief, silly theme song, great scenery and lavish costumes, what more can one ask from a $1 DVD?
I found this DVD in the dollar bin at Big Lots along with several others. The rest were not saving, but Zoro is a keeper.
The interplay between Zoro (Alain Delon) and Col. Huerta (Stanley Baker) is excellent. They spar verbally in the first half of the film, which climaxes in a long sword fight between the two. Incidentally, Stanley Baker died the year after completing Zorro, at age 49.
Ottavia Piccolo plays the female role to perfection.
