Storyline

The California-Yucatan Railroad, being built for the good of Mexico, is under siege by a gang of terrorists hoping to force its sale; no one can prove their connection to profiteer Marsden. Manuel Vega, aged co-owner, calls in the aid of his nephew James, great-grandson of the original Zorro. Alas, James seems more adept at golf than derring-do; but after he arrives, Zorro rides again! Can one black-clad man on horseback defeat a gang supplied with airplanes and machine guns? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

In Episode 8, Zorro escapes from the burning building and now has both revolvers in the holsters, but has had no contact with Joyce Andrews since he gave her one of his revolvers. In Episode 8, the water flow is restored after the villains had shut off the valve. But Zorro had left the control room without opening the valve. See more »

Joyce Andrews: Murdered! Brutally murdered by this fiend who calls himself El Lobo. He isn't human I tell you. An old man and a little boy - no employee of this company is safe!
Phillip Andrews: But sis...
Joyce Andrews: Oh, if there were only a man like your great-uncle Zorro, Don Manuel. He would know what to do with such as El Lobo

John Carroll in early dual role as Zorro in Republic serial...
10 January 2009 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

This was typical Saturday afternoon serial stuff from Republic with the script reduced to good vs. bad shootouts, this time involving a crooked man (NOAH BEERY) who wants to take over a railroad and will stop at nothing (including bombs and derailments) to get his way. Only thing stopping him is our man Zorro (JOHN CARROLL) who dons the mask whenever he has to get down to business.

The episodes I watched were three of the earlier episodes (#3, 4 and 5) where the villains open a derailment switch and almost trap Zorro before he can release his foot caught between closing tracks as a train approaches. He uses a unique way of getting out of the situation.

Lots of scenes with the villains using the wireless to contact each other as Zorro overhears their plans. HELEN Christian and REED HOWES are two of the most bland performers in the history of serials, judging from their work in this serial. Christian has the femme lead and she almost disappears while talking.

Carroll is okay as Zorro using his slight Spanish accent and looking boyishly young before he made it to better films as a featured player.

Something only the kiddies could really love--standard serial stuff.
