Description: When they say they don't make 'em like they used to, they're talking about 20th Century Fox's exhilarating The Mark of Zorro, starring Tyrone Power as the caped one, Linda Darnell as his love interest, and Basil Rathbone at his scurrilous best as Zorro's nemesis. More textured than the 1920 original with Douglas Fairbanks, this 1940 version has Don Diego/Zorro (Powers) returning from Madrid to defend his father and rally the caballeros (noblemen) against Los Angeles's corrupt new governor (J. Edward Bromberg), intent on taxing the peons to death. If this all sounds like an Old California redo of the classic Adventures of Robin ... (more)

"Fizzily directed by the underrated Rouben Mamoulian, 'The Mark of Zorro' was a sound remake of the 1920 Douglas Fairbanks vehicle of the same name and borrows liberally from the adventure cinema that went before it. But Mamoulian is able to bring together all the recognisable elements of a great adventure with such wit, charm and craftsmanship that the result is a film that ranks among the best of the genre. So, from 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' rips cast members Basil Rathbone and Eugene Pall"

"9.11Delightful action adventure even when some of the story's editing doesn't make sense. SImply put, Mark of Zorro is the Spanish-American version of The Adventures of Robin Hood. Not only does it stars Basil Rathbone and Eugene Pallette in practically the same roles, there are some scenes reminiscent of the Errol Flynn movie. Nonetheless, Tyrone Power is dashing, dazzling and all the accolade of a leading man fit to wear the black mask. Swordplay alone is worth the price of admission. "
