Zorro, zorrillo and "zorrillo" do not mean the same thing.
Zorro as you know means fox and Zorrillo means skunk, but also "zorrillo" may mean "dumb fox" or just dumb. This is a great Tin Tan classic and nothing but pure fun for all. Made after the success of "The mark of Zorro" with Tyrone Power some years earlier, but since this is Tin Tan, don't expect the story of Zorro. Actually it's a satire on Hollywood, with a mixture of "Zorro", "Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and with a touch of "Robin Hood" and even "Laurel and Hardy". With a great cast that includes a beautiful young Silvia Pinal and at least two Tin Tans. I wonder if you can spot his real brother "Don Ramon". I'm looking forward a digitally restored DVD copy of this, and the many other good old Mexican films of this period, that just must be restored before is too late.
