Movie Info

Directed by the legendary serial team of William Witney and John English, this exciting Republic "cliffhanger" was the only serial to closely resemble its Johnston McCulley origins. In Old California, Don Diego Vega, alias Zorro (Reed Hadley) organizes a fighting legion to protect gold shipments to Mexico. Don Del Oro (Montagu Shaw) attempts to steal the gold en route, and it takes Zorro and his Fighting Legion 12 chapters to finally defeat the villain and his band of marauding Indians. Doubled in this instance by the great Yakima Canutt, lanky, mustachioed Reed Hadley, was a prominent radio actor who usually played villainous supporting roles in films. He made a dashing hero, however, and arguably offers a better interpretation of the role than his serial predecessor John Carroll (Zorro Rides Again, 1937). Hadley continued to appear in Westerns and action adventures until his death in 1974, notably as the star narrator of the '50s television series Racket Squad.more
