Mixture of themes in this one in which Zorro struggles with. But the main one is land rights, with a good helping of women problems thrown in for good measure. Lots of Spaghetti regular actors in this good natured early Zorro film.
Actors in common between the two movies: in addition to Aureli, Serato and uncredited Bruno Ukmar (here General Savedra soldier, just like Mauro Mannatrizio) I noticed this guy. He also seems to be in White Pop Jesus, so we need further checks!
Good! Seems someone needs to re-think Professor Gabin . What would you say his role is? Queen’s page? manservant? attendant? She refers to Gonzalo earlier, but I got the impression he was probably the older guy helping her out of the carriage at Joaquim’s pub.
Zorro the Rebel
Brief appearance of Jeff Cameron.
Rosy De Leo plays Rosita.
According to Anica, Pollanetsquad and IMDb Alfonso’s correct surname is Giganti.
In my opinion Regina Seiffert is without a doubt Conchita - the cantina girl - and not Pilar, the girl with Don Alvarez (maybe Gioia Zanetti, we have to check Zorro, the Navarra Marquis). What do you think?
Brief appearance of Jeff Cameron. I didn’t think so. In my notes I have 'a younger skinnier Jeff Cameron look-a-like’ Rosy De Leo plays Rosita. Yes, Camencita in Zorro contro Maciste Alfonso’s correct surname is Giganti. Yes, of course maybe Gioia Zanetti, we have to check Zorro, the Navarra Marquis ??
El Zorro the Fox (1968) with Giorgio Ardisson, I suppose could be a sort of prequel to Zorro in Spain (1962) as he is returning from a stay in Mexico in that one. I like Ardisson as Zorro. Is that the bird speaking at the end in the Italian version? The 2 thieves, Poldo and Pancho, in bad wigs, I believe are Spartaco Battisti and Gippo Leone (Gipo or Gippo?).
Firpo (sounds like Felipe with a lisp to me) the bandit leader, the hood called Jeff in Chiamate 22-22, tenente Sheridan and the inspector in L’arcangelo (1969). Juan Vallejo is fairly highly credited (not on the last page, anyway)
Thanks! I don’t know why he’s third from the bottom in the Italian credits…
I re-watched Zorro il dominatore recently and it turns out that Pasquale Simeoli (also in El Zorro de Monterrey and credited as Mark Steven in Vayas con Dios, Gringo) and Dino/Lino Desmond (The Tramplers, Perchè uccidi ancora, Spara Gringo Spara) are the same person.
From left to right: Perchè uccidi ancora, Slaughter on the Khyber Pass, El Zorro de Monterrey, Zorro il dominatore
I did not spot Artemio Antonini but in minor roles: Marcello Meconizzi, Alba Maiolini, Romano Milani, Maurizio Streccioni, Romano Targa, Mario Dionisi, Luciano Bonanni, Attilio Severini, Franco Moruzzi, Gilberto Galimberti, Rocco Lerro, Luigi Mannoia (tbc)
El Zorro - La belva del Colorado is not an alternate title for Tessari’s Zorro: it refers with certainty to Santo contra los jinetes del terror, Mexican production directed by René Cardona jr. featuring the famous masked wrestler
While checking something in Indio Black, I came across Garcia (to the right of Father Eusebio). Furio Pellerani is also credited in El Rojo, but I’m not finding him there, so I checked Churchill’s Leopards (the priest) and Sigpress contro Scotland Yard (French inspector). We’ll see about El Rojo.
Same here, but I don’t have a good quality copy and can’t see the faces of the Mexicans appearing around 53:50 (Garcia) and 57:10, for instance.
According to Anica in Come svaligiammo la Banca d’Italia Furio plays Ferdinando (left), and Nino Pellerani is Fabio, our guy on the right: this is almost certainly a mistake, in any case Nino is also credited in Sigpress, so we must take this into consideration.
I also noticed a couple of things not related to Zorro movies
The Database pic of Mirko Ellis is wrong
In El Rojo, the re-done opening credits in red lettering list Andrea Fantasia and… Elio Angelucci. ‘Blackbeard’ is in the movie, but as everybody knows by now he’s not Angelucci!
