Having grown up with the Disney/Guy Willimas Zorro and become a Zorro fan I have tried watching as many versions of the Zorro movies that have been made. I really enjoyed this one. I think Alain Delon makes a great Zorro and while it doesn't stay true to the original novel (and let's face it most of the Zorro movies that have been made as well as the Zorro TV shows, very few followed the book) it is full of action, great settings and an entertaining cast. I have to confess I am very partial to the European Zorro productions from the 60's and early 70's. They are rather campy but very entertaining. I'm surprised this Zorro movie has not been released in a good DVD version as Alain Delon is a well know actor. Sit down and enjoy an evening with Alain Delon as Senor Zorro in a great swashbuckling movie.
When i first watched this flick - i was thinking it wasn't gonna be that good - it was a midday flick on an obscure channel (this was in 2005) - but i wound up enjoying every last second of it - i loved it - i was so surprised about how good it actually was. OK - granted - some of the effects (sound or otherwise) aren't the greatest - but we are talking about a flick that was made over 30 years ago - not last month - so you do have to give it some credit - but even considering that it was made so long ago - it out does alotta movies that were made very recently - in my opinion anyways. if you're a Zorro fan (or just a fan of sword fight movies) you have to see this one - highly entertaining and one of my current favourites - i so want to get this on DVD.
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!
The inimitable Alain Delon is Don Diego De la Vega , a foppish governor and look-alike gay , but he dons a black outfit and becomes the Zorro , the legendary masked , hero of oppressed . Zorro riding in the hoof-prints , relishes his secret identity in cape and blade and help the good people who are mistreated , thwarting the ambitious plans of the meanie official . He battles colonel Huertas (last feature movie by Stanley Baker) and a botcher sergeant (Moustache). Zorro's helped by a deaf and dumb servant (Enzo Cerusico) . Zorro unites forces to Father Francisco (Albertini) and a beautiful aristocrat (Ottavia Piccolo). Zorro-Delon fight evildoers and greedy colonel oppressor, while saving damsel in distress from a fate worse than death . The film is set in salty flavour of Old South American , New Aragon , rather than Old California , though it was filmed in Spain. Derring-do , feats , adventures , humor and action find this agreeable swashbuckler . Alain Delon runs and jumps , bounds and leaps all over the images and overacting outrageously when plays the queer governor . Delon requested to make this film after enjoying his role in the swashbuckler The Black Tulip (1964) by Christian Jaque . A nice cast keeps the picture moving at a rapid clip, special mention for Giacomo Rossi Stuart as grumpy German lieutenant Von Merkel and Moustache as bungler sergeant Garcia . The exciting final sword duel was inspired by the 1952 swashbuckler Scaramouche by George Sidney . Most of the crew was from Italy and the filming took place in Spain , though studio work was done in Rome , Italy . The motion picture was well-mounted and fast paced by Duccio Tessari , a Spaghetti Western expert. Other versions about this known personage , as television series starred by Guy Williams during the 60s and the 90s starred by Duncan Regher , as cinema the classic silent version (1920) by Douglas Fairbanks and 'The mark of Zorro' (1940) starred by Tyrone Power and directed by Robert Mamoulian . And , of course , modern rendition titled 'The mark and legend of Zorro' starred by Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones and directed by Martin Campbell .
Scenario well done, Magnificent realization. Alain DELON is masterful role in the role of Zorro. Humor, and fight in the magnificent sword. The last Duel is long but of an excellent beauty and a precision. Decorations very beautiful with a perfect stage setting. Role main things are interpreted with a lot class and of professionalism. Difficult to resist to a film of this scale for time and even even today. Not need of special effects as today with the Zorro of Antonio Banderas to appreciate the high quality of this film. A film to be seen emergency.
