Trivia

This is the only film to accurately depict Zorro as wearing a mask which covers his entire face, as he appeared on the cover of the August 9th, 1919 issue of All-Story Weekly; the magazine which first introduced him in the five part story The Curse of Capistrano. All subsequent film and television depictions which leave Zorro's chin, and usually his entire mouth, exposed are variations of the design first created for Douglas Fairbanks in the film The Mark of Zorro (1920) See more »

Better than Banderas
5 May 1999 | by pendocSee all my reviews

Well received in it's time and holds up well today. Plot and dialog are notable, and the Heather Angel character is powerful decades before feminism. Skip Banderas. Watch this one.
