The Mark Of Zorro
The Mark of Zorro

In one of the finest of all swashbucklers, Tyrone Power is not all he seems.

Power plays the pampered and seemingly lazy Don Diego Vega, who condemns the masked bandit Zorro for terrorising the rich and cruel ruling classes.

It is, of course, Diego Vega who is Zorro, and his duel with the loathsome Captain Esteban Pasquale (superbly played by Basil Rathbone) is the stuff of legend.

A very young and pretty Linda Darnell is the love interest, who sees Zorro for the good guy he is.

I suppose a rather predictable ending, but an uplifting one.

The flamboyant, frenetic music of Alfred Newman complemented the film and earned him an Oscar nomination.
