European version about famous character well played by Alain Delon
The inimitable Alain Delon is Don Diego De la Vega, a foppish governor and look-alike gay, but he dons a black outfit and becomes the Zorro, the legendary masked, hero of oppressed. Zorro riding in the hoof-prints, relishes his secret identity with cape and blade and help the good people who are mistreated ,thwarting the ambitious plans of the meanie official. He battles against colonel Huertas(Stanley Baker) and a botcher sergeant(Moustache). Zorro's helped by a deaf and dumb servant(Enzo Cerusico) . Zorro unites forces to Father Francisco(Albertini) and a beautiful aristocrat(Ottavia Piccolo). Zorro-Delon fight evildoers and greedy colonel oppressor, while saving damsel in distress from a fate worse than death. The film is set in salty flavour of Old South American, New Aragon, rather than Old California, though was filmed in Spain.
Derring-do, feats, adventures, humor and action find this agreeable swashbuckler.Alain Delon runs and jumps, bounds and leaps all over the images and overacting outrageously when plays the queer governor. A nice cast keeps the picture moving at a rapid clip, special mention for Giacomo Rossi Stuart as grumpy German lieutenant Von Merkel and Moustache as bungler sergeant Garcia. The motion picture is well-mounted and fast paced by Duccio Tessari, a Spaghetti Western expert.
Another versions about this known personage , as television series starred by Guy Williams during the 60s and the 90s starred by Duncan Regher, as cinema the classic mute version(1920) by Douglas Fairbanks and 'The mark of Zorro'(1940) starred by Tyrone Power and directed by Robert Mamoulian. And of course, modern rendition titled 'The mark and legend of Zorro' starred by Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones and directed by Martin Campbell.
