When Don Diego's identity as Zorro is revealed to Isabella, she has the Commandante arrest him as the killer. But he convinces her the Commandante was the killer as the Z was backwards.Written by

Enjoyable. Creaks, shows it age. Primitive in many ways, but nice bantering and humor between Livingston, the girl and the evil commandant. Sometimes I found the dialogue and acting stilted and silly, other times quite amusing................This film should interest Zorro fans for comparisons with other versions of the story -- here the girl plays a major role (her father is killed early in the story, and she inherits his position as governor of the province), Zorro's father/family are not even mentioned, and it is the Indians who are oppressed (in other versions I think it was the Hispanic peasants and others being oppressed).
