Synopsis by Robert Firsching
This is an Italian-French period costume piece retelling the Zorro legend, convincingly set in 1600s Spain. Pierre Brice (Winnetou) stars as Don Diego, who makes daring masked raids on his tyrannical stepfather's troops and incites the locals to stage an uprising. Brice was also in Zorro contra Maciste (released in America as Samson and the Slave Queen) for director Umberto Lenzi around the same time. Lenzi directed films of every genre for decades, but is best known for the gory horror films Cannibal Ferox and Mangiati Vivi, as well as violent crime thrillers like Milano Odia: La Polizia non Puo Sparare. Daniele Vargas co-stars with Helene Chanel, Aldo Bufi Landi, and Massimo Serato.
