The rich voice of Reed Hadley adds greatly to the character of Zorro. Wonderful action throughout the enitre serial, not just boring non stop fist fights. Fantastic musical score. One of the best overall serials.
One of the Best.

Republic Pictures made the best serials and this is one of their very best efforts. Reed Hadley is a wonderful Zorro, his rich baritone an amusing contrast with his affected falsetto as the foppish Don Diego. The scenes in which the blundering Don Diego foils the bad guys by "accident" are a highlight.
The mad mystery villain pretends to be a metallic Yaqui god, Don Del Oro, come to life. His plan is to lead a revolt to overthrow Juarez and take over Mexico.
The action is handled by Yakima Canutt and is top drawer all the way with some creative. exciting, and unusual cliffhangers.
All in all, a great hero and an even greater villain, plus a good mystery and terrific action, make this a strong contender for the best serial ever made.
