Zorros (HUM303)

Below, see The Mark of Zorro, the 1920 film version of Johnston McCulley’s serial fiction “The Curse of Capistrano,” first published in the pulp magazine All Story Weekly. McCulley condensed these initial texts in a single novel after the film was released, borrowing the film’s title and dedicating it to Douglas Fairbanks, “the original Zorro of the screen.” Subsequent adaptations include The Mark of Zorro (1940) starring Tyrone Power; The Mask of Zorro (1998) with Antonio Banderas; the delightfully campy Zorro, the Gay Blade (1981) featuring George Hamilton; a 2005 sequel to the 1998 film, The Legend of Zorro; and an animated series, Zorro: Generation Z (2008); in addition to many others.
