5.0 out of 5 stars The best zorro movie 4 April 2010
Format:DVD
Classic swashbuckling adventure starring Tyrone power as the hero and Basil Rathone as the evil villain.
If you have read my top 25 swashbuckling films list on Amazon, this classic is number 2. The reason is because it has a good story and there is an excellent sword fight between Tyrone and Basil.
Basil starred as villains in other classic swashbucklers such as "Captain Blood" 1935 and "Robin Hood" 1938 and he was a proffessional fencer in real life.
I think the quality of the colour version is brilliant and I was surprised because when most movies are remastered in colour, the quality is usually awful.
Another must see swashbuckler which stars Tyrone Power is "The Black Swan" 1942 and it's ranked number 11 on my list.It also has excellent colour and George Sanders does a good performance as the villain.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make them like this anymore. 17 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
This is the remake of the original silent film, and I haven't seen that one, but this is far better than the recent Banderas/Zeta-Jones versions. We showed this on a large screen to 15 7 year-olds for my son's birthday, and although some were faintly bemused that a film could be black and white, all agreed this one was better. The crucial swordfight is fantastic, and despite primitive special effects, everyone was riveted. Well worth a look.

I'm along in years and a big fan of 1940s movies, so I'm always pleased when a good one becomes available. This fills the bill nicely. It is a pristine b&w print with excellent sound, and a dynamic forward momentum full of action. The plot is well known and the inevitable takes its course, so it's best watched tongue in cheek and with a little detachment to savour the gentle humour as a smitten Zorro (Tyrone Power), disguised as a friar and hidden under a cowl, counsels the radiant teenager he's set his cap for (Linda Darnell) not to enter a convent, but to stick around to produce sons and daughters so needed by the church. More humour emerges when the harassed villain of the piece (a Sancho Panza comic figure) unwittingly arranges to have his arch enemy Zorro as his son in law (!) and constantly confides his frame of mind and how his resistance to Zorro's threats is dwindling. The actors are able and its fun to see them develop the stereotypes required by the script (no Meryl Streep originality here!). Advice: since much is predictable don't look for suspense, but see what SURROUNDS the plot, including the excellent studio precision that keeps things brisk and stages a nice little riot at the end. The film was Oscar nominated in 1940 and will appeal to people along in years, like myself.

This is possibly the best version of the Zorro story. It skips along at a good pace, with plenty of humour, drama and action. Tyrone Power is a likeable and able hero, while Basil Rathbone is excellent as the eccentric evil villain, both are fantastic swordsmen and do an amazing duelling scene together. What rainy Sundays were created for.

I give this film 5 stars as it is pure and enjoyable entertainment. Fabulous actors, wonderful story and setting, with witty dialogue, super action scenes and uplifting music too. It is suitable for all ages and in itself is ageless.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mark of Zorro 22 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
This is a brilliant swashbuckling adventure starring Tyrone Power as the hero and Basil Rathone as the evil villain.
Real classic viewing primarily because of the story line and the excellent sword fighting sequence between Power and Rathbone.
Rathbone went through a phase of staring as villains in classic swashbucklers such as "Captain Blood" 1935 and "Robin Hood" 1938 and looked the part in them all as he was a great fencer in real life and this just adds to the believability of the films he was in, he was also in my opinion the definative Sherlock Holmes.
The quality of the colour version is brilliant as is the remastered B&W.
Great viewing if you like this genre.
