McCulley, Johnston: Zorro - The Curse of Capistrano

El Zorro, the Scarlet Pimpernel of California. This is the book that started it all. Written in 1919 (and out of copyright in the USA), this formed the basis for many movies and television series.

Who can ever forget Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. or Guy Williams as Zorro (or even Zorro, The Gay Blade with George Hamilton.) Riding through the night, making the sign of the "Z", when I was young every kid wanted to be Zorro.

The cover art is from the original serialization of the work and the book was published later.

Thank you. From you, the master of conversion, that is very appreciated.

It never even occurred to me that this was a book. Hadn't really thought about it. But definitely one I want to read!

My favorite video version was with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Bandaros (or people with names kind of like that - I don't keep up with actors too well).

Thanks!

The first CZJ & AB (see how cleverly I got out of spelling their names?) movie was quite good, the second was ... not too bad.

I hadn't realized there was an actual book behind the movies either, though I've seen some good discussions of the root legend/story. I look forward to adding it to my cultural mental landscape.
