Review

''A succession of thrills from first page to last. . . Original. . . Captivating.'' --Boston Traveler

''Cunning, suave, fearless, and a friend to the poor, the masked El Zorro first appeared in the pulp magazine All-Story Weekly in 1919. This sparkling full-cast audio adaptation of the original short story, 'The Curse of Capistrano,' provides the sounds of plenty of swords clashing and bullets ricocheting. Where the real sparks fly is in the wonderfully honed playful dialogue, performed by an A-list Hollywood cast. Val Kilmer uses subtle vocal changes to play both the aristocratic idler Don Diego de la Vega and Diego s alter ego -- the dashing El Zorro, who easily bests the villainous and foolish Captain Ramon and Sergeant Gonzalez, played with great energy by Keith Szarabajka and Meshach Taylor. But Zorro is no match for the stinging words of the lovely, proud Lolita Pulido, played with fiery grace by Ruth Livier. Good-natured fun.'' --AudioFile

The story was based on the Johnston McCulley book. It's like an old time radio drama complete with sound effects. So do not expect someone reading the actual book. The voice actors were terrific! LOVE Val Kilmer as Zorro (Deep voice gives you shivers). His portrayal of Don Diego is unbelievably funny, and there is no way anyone would guess his other identity. Really enjoyed Lolita's performance which was a surprise as I've always liked Victoria as the love interest in New World Zorro. The ending is a cliffhanger and now we must wait for a sequel to find out Zorro's identity (or do we?).
They didn't provide a rating, but there is some violence for those who may object. The only negative comment I have to make is the packaging did not provide much information on who played each role. However, at the end of the program, a narrator provides the information I wanted to know.

If you grew up in the late 1950's, Zorro was played by Tyrone Power ((The Mark of Zorro (Special Edition) (Colorized / Black and White)) or Guy Williams (Walt Disney Treasures: Zorro - The Complete First Season). This audio dramatation is in a similar vein, but not quite.

To start with this adaptation, It does base itself a upon the classic Johnston McCulley story with a happier ending. I will say this is a good audio with a few major flaws.

To say that the cast of this Hollywood Theater of the Ear audio presentation is filled with major familar names is an understatement. With a cast as good as this, you could make an interesting Zorro film..if it wasn't audio. Such notable names as Meshack Taylor (Designing Women), Armin Shimerman (Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV Show)Elizabeth Pena (Rush Hour), Phillip Proctor (from the Firesign Theatre),Keith Szarabajka (Golden Years), Scott Brick & Stephan Rudnicki (two of the best audio book narrators in the business), and Val Kilmer(Top Gun, Real Genuis) as Zorro. With this much talent involved, you would expect an almost perfect production..BUT alas, art as in life is never perfect

Writer, Director and Producer Yuri Rasovsky has dramatized a Zorro without a real heart. In film, TV, and other audio productions (Zorro Rides Again: A Radio Dramatization is a good example of another audio production), the character has a duality issue...

It is amazing how long it took for someone to do an audio of this magnificent story. The result is absolutely great. I was surprised how well Val Kilmer gave us a Zorro even with the adecuate accent for the role he was portraying. Although the lady who represented Lolita Polito is the best in the production!. I just loved her. The music is also fantastic from beggining to end. Highly recommended for both Zorro fans and the general audience.

As a Zorro follower I decided to take a chance on this audio presentation with a full cast. I do a lot of walking for exercise and I wanted something to listen to. This presentation is exciting and funny at the same time. The characters of Zorro, the Sgt, and Lolita are excellent!! In fact I have listen to this audio four times now over a few months. I would definitely recommend this audio presentation to anyone who is into Zorro. You will not be disappointed.

The audio story was very entertaining and dramatic during a long drive. Ages 11 to 75 enjoyed the sound and action. We only wished we were able to find out the true identity of Zorro. That was left hanging.
