Zorro - Bold Caballero
Frequently Bought Together
The Bold Caballero, the first Zorro adventure filmed in color, features popular cowboy actor Robert Livingston, best remembered for his 29 appearances in the Three Mesquiteers series. Zorro wasnt the only masked hero portrayed by Livingston. He starred as the mysterious ""Eagle"" in the 1936 serial, The Vigilantes Are Coming, and as the Lone Ranger in The Lone Ranger Rides Again (1939). This film was one of just two directed by veteran screenwriter, Wells Root, who wrote over 60 screenplays in his illustrious career, including I Cover the Waterfront (1933) and The Prisoner of Zenda (1937).

There's also an early use of a toro-cam here, which made me smile.
In Old California, the poor pueblo of Santa Cruz has been victimized by seven years of the local Commandante's foul rule. The oppressed citizenry - most of whom are Indian natives as opposed to Mexican peóns - reverently chant Zorro's name, perhaps as a prayer for salvation, perhaps as a charm against unfair taxation, or perhaps simply to infuriate the Commandante and his soldados. Somewhere, the people's protector hears their plea.
Here's this pompous new governor, come to Santa Cruz and very much displeased with all this talk of El Zorro at large. Here's Don Diega Vega, visiting from Mexico and styling himself a "gentleman pauper." Don Diego is rightaway regarded as a weak-kneed and fawning nobleman, his smelling salts ever at the ready.Read more ›
