Editorial Reviews

After having a surprise hit playing Dracula in "Love at First Bite", George Hamilton seized the moment and spoofed another movie hero: Zorro. In fact, he plays two characters: the heroic Don Diego, who fights Spanish tyranny in Old California in his secret identity as Zorro, and Diego's long-absent brother, Bunny Wigglesworth, a man totally comfortable with his sexual identity and unafraid of accessorizing the Zorro outfit by rendering it in purple. When the swashbuckler is injured, he turns his sword over to the swishbuckler, who is just as good a swordsman, though a few shades less fiery. Some of the gay humor is heavy-handed, but Hamilton easily handles the comedy demands of the dual roles, and has strong support from Ron Leibman as the chief bad guy. "--Marshall Fine"

I was extremely disappointed. I had seen the original movie release years ago, and was excited to buy the DVD. However, much of the original movie is missing! They have taken the edited down version from TV and made it into a DVD. None of the really hilarious parts were left intact.....therefore some parts of the movie don't even make sense! I wish someone would release the original movie in it's entirety, not such a watered-down, hacked-up shadow of the Gay Blade Zorro I knew and loved.

Both George Hamilton and Lauren Hutton are wonderful in this movie. It takes the classic Zorro industry and gives it a twist. Don't expect the classic action/adventure story.
Hamilton plays both Don Diego Vega and Bunny Wigglesworth. Unbeknownst to them, they are the sons of the legendary Zorro.
Vega returns home to find his childhood friend Esteban in control and a lady from his youth, Florinda (Brenda Vaccaro) married to Esteban. Also, his father has died and left his Zorro costume for his son. Seizing his 'destiny', Vega becomes Zorro causing much trouble to the ruthless Esteban (Ron Leibman).
He fights the "tyranny and injustices" until he injures his ankle jumping from a window.
Enter Bunny Wigglesworth. Bunny is completely the opposite of his lothario brother--English accent, no tan and loves men. During his brothers recouperation, Bunny takes up the sword--and the whip and many colorful Zorro costumes.
Adding to the mix is the character played by Lauren Hutton, Charlotte Taylor Wilson. She is a beauty from the east who has come west to liberate the downtrodden. Vega is immediately taken by her.
This movie is full of cute lines you will find yourself saying later. Also, the stars of the film (Hamilton, Hutton, Liebman and Vaccaro) are all wonderful in their roles. (Watching Vaccaro, who's character is bored with her dull husband, chasing Hamilton is hilarious!)
I highly recommend this film for a great laugh. I've practically worn out my VHS copy of Zorro!

This 1981 side-splitting comedy directed by Peter Medak is a fun spoof on the legendary Zorro. A light-comedy with a humorous plot that can only make you laugh.

Don Diego De La Vega (George Hamilton) arrives to Spain's colony of California to find it despoiled by the excesses of his former friend, Capitan Esteban (Ron Leibman). He soon uncovers the secret of Zorro from his dead father and now becomes the masked protector. Accidentally injured during one of his outings, Don Diego almost calls it quits until his estranged brother, Bunny Wigglesworth (also played by George Hamilton), comes to town to save the day. Although an unabashed dandy in England's Royal Navy, Bunny takes the challenge and adds a little zest to the legend of Zorro. With Bunny's fashionable tastes, Zorro's sombre costumes soon become colorful fashion statements of green, purple, and yellow. Bunny also discards the sword and leaves his traditional 'Z' mark with his whip instead.

A great tongue-in-cheek comedy that makes the maximum spoof of the dandy stereotype. The film never takes itself too seriously and offers laughs for the whole family.

I first saw this movie when I was 10 years old and it still makes me laugh to this day.
What makes this comedy unique for me though, is how so many different story elements are blended so beautifully. You have romance, action, and comedy so wonderfully balanced that the entire movie is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Bunny Wigglesworth is so over-the-top whilst Diego's accent is so hilariously exploited. Esteban's evil is perfectly juxtaposed against Diego's love interest. The drama of Zorro surrendering himself to save the one he loves plays against the "other" Zorro whipping his name into the wall (and not just a "Z", but "Zeeeeee Ohhhhhhhhh Rrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrr Ohhhhhhh! Zorro!" Esteban: "Ah, ha!!! I think he is trying to tell me something!"
It's also evident in the music. The dark, thunderous playing of violins accentuate Esteban's bad character. The light, lilting tune is playful when Zorro fences. The music waxes nostalgic when Ms. Hutton kisses Zorro.
Sadly, the transfer of this movie to DVD seems confined to someone eating a Twinkie and hitting record from a VHS tape. Mono sound? Poor video transfer? Come on, people, get with it! While it's forgivable on very old movies, a 1981 flick is NOT beyond the realm of beautification. And for the price, some extras would have been nice.
Still, it's nice to see that someone thinks highly enough of the film to transfer it to something longer-lasting than a VHS tape.

Peter Medak directs this HILARIOUS film based on the character created by Johnston McCulley. After his AMAZING SUCCESS in spoof Bram Stoker's "DRACULA" in 'LOVE AT FIRST BITE', George Hamilton returned to film this picture. Hamilton plays 'DON DIEGO VEGA', the son of the original 'ZORRO'. When he returns to California for the funeral of his father, 'DIEGO' soon learns that he has inherited the mantle of "ZORRO". Not ONLY THAT, he ALSO learns that he has a LONG LOST IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHER. After an accidental fall, which leaves him with a swollen foot, 'DIEGO' is soon reunited with his brother, 'RAMON'. (Who turns out to be a foppish homosexual). George Hamilton is EXTREMELY HILARIOUS in the dual role of 'DON DIEGO VAGA' & 'RAMON VEGA/BUNNY WIGGLESWORTH'. Ron Liebmann is also very good as the villain. Brenda Vaccaro and Lauren Hutton round out the cast as the female leads.
