Description by OLDIES.com:

Power-hungry warlords threaten the freedom of the new republic of Mexico, with only one man and his band of fighters standing in their way. Zorro, the fearless masked champion, calls together the bravest men of Mexico to stand against the brutal Don Del Oro and his plot to rule the country. Deep within a mountainside fortress the villain poses as an ancient god, sending the Yaqui Indians to loot gold shipments in order to bankrupt the government. Del Oro employs human sacrifice and torture in his quest for power. When his scheme is thwarted by Zorro's fighting legion, Del Oro unleashes the Yaquis and his vicious band of killers in an all-out war on Mexico.

Produced by Republic Pictures during the Golden Age of Serials, Zorro's Fighting Legion features continuous cliff-hanging action, swordplay, explosions and spectacular stunt work.

Rating 5.0 Great Action, Great Voice, Great Music Movie Lover: from San Francisco, CA US -- November, 8, 2008

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.


Rating 5.0 One of the Best. Movie Lover: from New Mexico -- October, 30, 2008

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.
