A newly arrived governor finds his province under the control of the corrupt Colonel Huerta. To avoid assassination by Huerta, he pretends to be weak and indecisive so Huerta will believe he poses no threat. But secretly he masquerades as Zorro, and joins the monk Francisco and the beautiful aristocrat Ortensia in their fight for justice against Huerta and his soldiers.Written by

For us that grew up in the '70's... THIS was our Zorro film!
It was kinda campy, but then again... so was Batman reruns. Watching it again now, it's hard to compare with films made nowdays, but I still enjoyed it. This time around I got the subtle jokes (Zorro sticks his foot in front of Garcia and says, "Have a nice trip").
The common themes of Zorro are there - The freeing of the slave labor, the little boy that assists Zorro in slapping the soldiers around, the priest, the Diego character. Also all the familiar swordfighting cliches (i.e, the candle cut, the jump up on the table).
I recently found this at Wal-Mart for $4.99, so I bought it not expecting much. From the moment I heard the silly Zorro theme song, I knew that this was the Zorro movie from my youth!
Get this and enjoy it!
