the films of 20th century fox had a sheen unlike the other studios output.
one of their main stars; tyrone power (an underrated star today)was an embodiment of this sylized sheen.
he was different than errol flynn. while you always sensed flynn's bad boy personality even when he played squaeky clean heroes, power was far more an actor and his performances always seem more professionally toned. he is more 'with the film' than standing out against it and this may be the reason for the lack of appreciation for him.
this film is the shining example to the hollywood of old.
its excellence was predictable when you mix the beauty of power and darenll with the down right fun villany of rathbone, the music of newman, the goya toned cinematography and the virtually flawless direction of mamoulian.
sadly, its the like of which we wont see again for numerous reasons.
NOW, IF FOX WOULD DIG INTO THEIR ARCHIVES AND RELEASE POWER'S BEST ACTING IN FILM; NIGHTMARE ALLEY' a film that has never even seen the light of vhs.

There've been many Zorro's down through the ages some called "the Mark of Zorro", " some of the legend of Zorro ", "Behind the mask of Zorro", " Zorro the Gay Blade" and so forth. Of all the Zorro's of comment on this is the Zorro that they are all measured by.

Diego Vega (Tyrone power) is being called home to old Los Angeles by his father and must give up his commission in Spain. When Diego gets home he finds his father, Don Alejandro Vega (Montagu Love), who was the Alcalde has had his position usurped by Don Luis Quintero (J. Edward Bromberg) and his henchmen Captain Esteban Pasquale (Basil Rathbone). Diego find that the opposition is too great and must call on his alter ego Zorro to save the day. While in the process of relieving Don Quintero of his ill-gotten tax gold, Diego finds and falls in love with Quintero's niece Lolita Quintero (Linda Darnell).

Can Zorro accomplish his mission and if so how? Let's watch together as the story plays out.

Format: DVD
This is arguably the best film version of Johnston McCulley's costumed swordfighter of old California, beating out both the 1920s Douglas Fairbanks film and the recent Banderas/Hopkins blockbuster (although both are good films in their own rights).
What this film has is Golden Age Hollywood style in spades: glamourous photography, music, and star power. It has less action than you might expect, and Tyrone Power actually spends very little time in the Zorro costume -- he's in his 'civilian' duds for the whole finale. But the film is such good-natured fun and director Mamoulian has such a solid handle on the material that it hardly matters. The romance and comedy are also well executed and finely balanced with the physical action.
Speaking of action, the big duel between Tyrone Power and Basil Rathbone is a stunner, an amazing piece of combat choreography. As a bonus, Fox Home Video has mixed the film in stereo; very rare for a film of the period. The disc also has a 45 minute episode of "Biography" about Tyrone Power. It spends only a minute on THE MARK OF ZORRO, but it does show a priceless outtake of Power dressed in the Zorro costume making fun of studio boss Darryl Zanuck. Even if you don't watch the whole documentary, make sure you speed through it to catch this riotous old Hollywood prank.
