Zorro alla corte d'Inghilterra


One of the great things about the internet is the fact that I am constantly able to learn new things. Take for example the picture you see here. I discovered it last night while searching for images from Zorro movie serials. It was listed under the French title "Zorro au service de la Reine," but that was irrelevant to me. Under any title, I had never heard of it!

It turns out to be from the 1969 Italian film "Zorro alla corte d'Inghilterra", which has the English title "Zorro in the Court of England." Well, color me intrigued! Why the heck is Zorro in England? I don't know, and not even the Italian Wikipedia offers a clue. So it shall remain a tantalizing mystery for the time being.

I'll probably do further research on this matter in the days and weeks ahead. However, I thought it was worth sharing the very cool picture and the joy that I am still learning about old movies after all these years. I probably will be for the rest of my life.

Hi! I just ordered this movie. I am also learning about earlier films. Actually, I saw the 1959 film Last Days of Pompeii recently and really thought the actress Barbara Caroll did a beautiful job. So,I've been researching her films and stumbled upon this one. I can't wait to see it, and I'm intrigued by Zorro being in England too.
