I have a feeling some have checked it thinking its "the mask of zorro" the newer version....

Holy mackerel, that swordplay was Fierce!. Tyrone Power is the total package in this one, charmer, bandit, and sword fighter extraordinaire. I love Rathbone being in the mix, you can't have a good sword fight without ol' Basil being around. It's a fine action film, and a joy to watch from start to finish.

1940's The Mark of Zorro retells/reimagines the story of Don Diego leaving Spain and arriving in California, where the authorities are bleeding the peasantry dry. So though he gave up swordsmanship in the old country, he's forced to take it up again as the Fox. Quality swashbuckling ensues (that fight with Basil Rathbone's Captain Pasquale is really great). Tyrone Power is such a charmer in the lead that I completely understand having him unmask at the earliest opportunity. Not unlike modern superhero films' malaise about not showing their stars, Power has more charisma without the mask than with it. And it really does play like a superhero story, with Don Diego affecting a foppish attitude as a secret identity. Full of action, romance and wit, The Mark of Zorro proved a joy from start to finish, and I am frankly surprised (and dismayed) they never found a way to make more Zorro stories with Tyrone Power.
