Product Description

Product Description

Brand new original factory sealed. Never being buff

After having a surprise hit playing Dracula in Love at First Bite, George Hamilton seized the moment and spoofed another movie hero: Zorro. In fact, he plays two characters: the heroic Don Diego, who fights Spanish tyranny in Old California in his secret identity as Zorro, and Diego's long-absent brother, Bunny Wigglesworth, a man totally comfortable with his sexual identity and unafraid of accessorizing the Zorro outfit by rendering it in purple. When the swashbuckler is injured, he turns his sword over to the swishbuckler, who is just as good a swordsman, though a few shades less fiery. Some of the gay humor is heavy-handed, but Hamilton easily handles the comedy demands of the dual roles, and has strong support from Ron Leibman as the chief bad guy. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I first saw this movie when I was 10 years old and it still makes me laugh to this day.
What makes this comedy unique for me though, is how so many different story elements are blended so beautifully. You have romance, action, and comedy so wonderfully balanced that the entire movie is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Bunny Wigglesworth is so over-the-top whilst Diego's accent is so hilariously exploited. Esteban's evil is perfectly juxtaposed against Diego's love interest. The drama of Zorro surrendering himself to save the one he loves plays against the "other" Zorro whipping his name into the wall (and not just a "Z", but "Zeeeeee Ohhhhhhhhh Rrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrr Ohhhhhhh! Zorro!" Esteban: "Ah, ha!!! I think he is trying to tell me something!"
It's also evident in the music. The dark, thunderous playing of violins accentuate Esteban's bad character. The light, lilting tune is playful when Zorro fences. The music waxes nostalgic when Ms. Hutton kisses Zorro.
Sadly, the transfer of this movie to DVD seems confined to someone eating a Twinkie and hitting record from a VHS tape. Mono sound? Poor video transfer? Come on, people, get with it! While it's forgivable on very old movies, a 1981 flick is NOT beyond the realm of beautification. And for the price, some extras would have been nice.
Still, it's nice to see that someone thinks highly enough of the film to transfer it to something longer-lasting than a VHS tape.

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 1 2002
Format: DVD
We named our cat Esteban because he has the same arrogant attitude that the character Ron Leibman plays. They say that cats can't make expressions but this one sometimes made the same faces. This is one of my all time favorite George Hamilton movies. It is right up there with "Love At First Bite (1979)". Lauren Hutton also gets to be a vampire in Once Bitten (1985). And Brenda Vaccaro makes you feel sorry for Florinda's situation. Brenda also is a seasoned actress who appeared in several movies before this and later in Ten Little Indians (1989) as Marion Marshall.

Actually the movie follows the original script better than the old TV programs. Don Diego Vega comes back too late to find that his father had a fatal accident when his horse was frightened by a tortuga and Esteban summarily executed the tortuga for the dastardly deed. The music that starts the credits is "The Adventures of Don Juan" by Max Steiner. This movie is so packed with mirth that you can not convey this by telling the shoreline. One of my favorites is when Zorro makes the sine of the Zee and asks a peasant what that symbol stands for. "Senior that is the sign of a two." "My daughter learned this in the school."

To some of you that take historical stuff too seriously, and are homophobic, this movie will probably offend you. But as someone who hated history all through school---except any movie or series (Thanks, Walt)with the Title Zorro, you will always have my rapt attention.
I would like to add that I have never seen George Hamilton in anything I liked----except this movie, and except for this movie, I don't think the guy can act. But this movie was funny as hell.
Like two of the previous reviewers, I too have seen this movie several times. Like.....a few other films, I have to hurry up and buy it, or not see it anymore, since the video store is very shortly taking it out of their inventory.
There is no way this movie can offend a thinking person. There is no perversion in this movie of any kind, and I've seen family films that offended me more than this one. I don't see how this could offend.

In the event that some of you think I might be a lightweight, I would like to add that I also saw the mask of Zorro, and was equally entertained. Historical fiction isn't usually my thing. But I not only saw the mask of zorro, it was also in the first group of Videos I bought when I joined a video club.

I remember this movie when I was a kid in mid 1980s. It's a very memorable movie and I've been longing to have the DVD. Back then there's no good news about its DVD release until last month I accidently got info from IMDb of it future release. Of course I placed advance order of this title. When the disc arrived yesterday, I was very happy and I watched the movie that night.
The movie itself is not so special as a comedy movie. George Hamilton was funny and his looks were perfect as a macho-swordsman-hero Zorro. He almost look perfect as the Gay Zorro. His opponent/ enemy, forgot the name, was also superb. He's my favourite in this movie. His act was perfect and very funny. As for Lauren Hutton, unfortunately she didn't get a big role. She should have get more important dialogue than what she did.
The storyline flews and easy to follow. Not confusing, no bloodshed, rich with small slapsticks, and even accurate in details (designs of homes and castle, paint color, dress, weapons, etc). Oddly enough that rifles and guns wereas not often used in this movie. Mostly only swords and knife.
The gay Zorro was also good and hilarious. His costumes were also colorful and he should get more appearances in the movie. Hamilton was gay enough to express those gay attitudes :) I really love this guy.
This movie can't be on par with other successful comedy movies, but it's fun enough to see the other side of Zorro.
