Decorations very beautiful with aperfect stage setting. Some studio work was done in Rome. While lulling Colonel Huerta's fears by pretending to be a useless , Diego learns that Huerta is a cruel despot as well as a dangerous swordsman.
It's hellacious lyrics, vocals and music attackthe brain and cling on for hours and hours after the film has beenviewed. Delon wears the cape and the mask thistime around and does an admirable job for the most part. The high-definition transfer has obviously been struck from a dated source, most likely a master that was prepared quite some time ago, also most likely from dated elements. Naturally I had to check this film out. Diego plays the Governor as prissy and fey in order not to be seen as a threat.
She makes a lovely damsel in distress. . This is an insult to the Zorro legend, it is just awful, the filming is overexposed, the acting by some of the cast is way over the top, Alain Delon for most of the time walks about with a few days growth of beard, and poor Stanley Baker, not a good film to nearly end his career on, and l don't think the director Duccio Tessari knew what he was doing, and that awful awful music every time Zorro appears, if you ever have to see this film you will know what l mean, to many deep closeups, and added sound effects of swords clashing together spoilt this films, well for me it did I don't like giving a film a low mark, but as Zorro is my favourite film character this is a disgrace so 1 out of 10 Yes - I actually like the strange song featured throughout this film. Alain Delon starred in a curious Italian version filmed in Spain and set in South America. The film's popular soundtrack was composed by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis Enzo Barboni's , Enzo G.
It's actually quite funny but it is not what you would call an outstanding film but it does entertain fans. Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1. There are no audio dropouts or serious distortions to report in this review. The version I viewed cut out an entire half hour, so I might raise my rating if I eventually see the longer version. When his friend Miguel is killed in the eve of his departure to the New World, Diego takes his place as the new governor who has arrived from Spain in order to avenge his friend's death.
The inimitable Alain Delon is Don Diego De la Vega , a foppish governor and look-alike gay , but he dons a black outfit and becomes the Zorro , the legendary masked , hero of oppressed. It has a cult following that gets the humor of Zorro and spaghetti westerns. The villain, Colonel Huerta,isgrandiose in the comic book tradition, and Moustache as Sergeant Garcia isnice and bumptuous. This English-language version of Zorro, which is also the original theatrical version of the film, looks fairly decent. Piccolo, as theheroine resembles Linda Blair, excepting that Piccolo can actually act. Not need of special effects astoday with the Zorro of Antonio Banderas to appreciate the high qualityof this film. Over the course of his career, Delon has worked with many well-known directors, including Luchino Visconti, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Melville, Michelangelo Antonioni and Louis Malle.
However, after a few more viewings, I fell in love with it. Alain Delon enjoys playing the dual roles as foppish Diego and the devilish and dashing Zorro. For the record, Somerville House have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

Alain Delon Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon born 8 November 1935 is a French-Swiss actor.
Its a very good movie with a great cast and there is neither a deluxe edition nor a remaster of the film. It is rather soft, with various clarity and color fluctuations, especially during darker sequences, but most close-ups look acceptable. The exciting final sword duel was inspired by the 1952 swashbuckler Scaramouche by George Sidney. Alain Delon is just fit for the character, completely charismatic and passionate about the role rumour has it that Antony Delon asked his father to play Zorro as he was his favourite hero. Alain Delon runs and jumps , bounds and leaps all over the images and overacting outrageously when plays the queer governor.
The last Duel is long but ofan excellent beauty and a precision. The strength of the film lies in the animosity andrivalry of Delon and Baker put to good use as the villain. During a few of the action sequences most notably at the market place early into the film , there is even some decent dynamic movement. In fact, a lot of the humordoesn't seem to translate from what the Spanish consider funny to whatAmerican audiences will enjoy. He battles colonel Huertas last feature movie by Stanley Baker and a botcher sergeant Moustache.
