Around 1820 the son of a California nobleman comes home from Spain to find his native land under a villainous dictatorship. On the one hand he plays the useless fop, while on the other he is the masked avenger Zorro.Written by

After Zorro breaks into the Alcalde's home, threatens him, and meets Lolita, he is shortly, thereafter, seen slashing down a "Wanted" poster offering 20,000 pesos for his capture. Later, when he holds up the tax collectors after they have gathered tax money from the peons, as he robs the tax collectors, in the background can be seen another "Wanted" poster offering 5,000 pesos reward for the capture of Zorro. In a subsequent scene moments later, they again show the poster offering 20,000 pesos reward for Zorro's capture. See more »
This is an excellent classic that I pop in and watch often. No matter how many times you watch this one, it's still a great movie. This one is well worth purchasing. And who doesn't like Zoro? It's just a great little romp with horses, swords, and peons. Eugene Palette is one of my favorite supporting actors that just so happens to be the Fiar Fray Felipe, the local church leader. Although a member of the church, the Friar is also capable of using (and teaching?) the use of the sword. After the return of Don Deigo and the mysterious highwayman Zoro, the Friar finds himself the "purveyer of stolen goods!" He also gets in on the action at the end, hitting soldiers on the head left and right and saying "God forgive me!" He also gets to escort the Vega's down to the ship sailing for Spain at the end as well as other pieces here and there. Overall he got a fairly substantial part in the movie in my opinion. Just a great movie for the family or just yourself on a rainy day or any day.
