Storyline

Don Cesar de Vega, son of Zorro, is in Spain for his education. By way of education, he duels with Don Sebastian of the Queen's Guard (soon to be his rival for the hand of lovely Dolores de Muro), makes love, and befriends the visiting Archduke of Austria. But a quarrel ending in violence gives Don Sebastian the chance to dispose of his rival...by framing him for murder! Feigning suicide, Cesar escapes. Being a chip off the old block, a whip-wielding outlaw (this being his weapon rather than the sword) sets out to clear the name of Vega... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Was this the first sequel?
2 March 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

As an early Zorro movie, well, an early movie period, this was fairly good. I will admit that some of it was kind of dumb. The plot is that Zorro's son has been framed for a murder. This happens because someone forges the murder victim's signature saying he was the killer. How could anyone be fooled into thinking someone wrote down who their murderer was? Was this a thing back in the 1920's? The Zorro costume does in fact appear, but unfortunately it's only in the last ten minutes. With all that being said, this still is by no means a bad movie. The original Zorro movie was better.

While this was before color, I really was impressed by the tints of this movie. I guess they don't count as colors, but this really was a nice looking movie. The atmosphere is probably the strongest point, because this is a movie that's very nice to look at with great sets. It's so nice to see how well they hold up after nearly a hundred years! I like the idea of Zorro having a son, but this was interesting because he wasn't just taking on the persona of Zorro. He really was becoming a new character in his own right. Sequels shouldn't just repeat what the original did. It's great to point out the flaws in such an old movie. While not a classic, it's fine. ***
