The DVDs were in great condition, but I was surprised to find them without the original packaging and in a paper case inside the DVD case. I would have preferred them to be in the original packaging seeing as I bought them as a gift. Otherwise, they were in great condition!

"Son of Zorro" is a 13-chapter Republic serial released in 1947, directed by Spencer Bennet and Fred C. Brannon, with screenplay by Franklin Adreon, Basil Dickey, Jesse Duffey and Sol Shor.

Jeff Stewart (George Turner), returning from the Civil War, finds Box County, Texas overrun with crooked politicians, taking over ranches after assessing taxes that can't possibly be paid, and placing a heavy toll on the only road through the county. The culprits include Sheriff Moody (Edward Cassidy) and Judge Hyde (Ernie Adams), aided by outlaw Boyd (Roy Barcroft) and his gang, but they are taking orders from a "big boss" whose identity is kept secret. Jeff is a descendent of Zorro, and while he prefers using legal means, he soon finds that being a vigilante is the only way to deal with the crooks running the county.

This is hardly of the quality of "Zorro's Fighting Legion" and George Turner is one of several serial movie actors who looked good, but were rather one-dimensional; it's just as well he didn't try using a "Don Diego" identity. And while it makes the costume change easier, this "Zorro" lacks not only a whip, but also sword and cape. Peggy Stewart is fine as the Postmistress, Kate Wells, more-involved in the plot than most serial-movie heroines, though she gets knocked unconscious or tied up at least every other chapter. If the plot is somewhat tired, Ernie Adams, Edward Cassidy and Roy Barcroft are good at their bad-guy roles, and there's plenty of action, with well-choreographed fist fights and first-rate stunt work.
