If I said to you that Zorro never used a gun, but only a Sword (rapier) and his Bullwhip,
would you challenge that?
And if I also said that Zorro only uses his famous black Eye Mask for his disguise,
would you disagree?
... in The Mark of Zorro (1940) we see transgressions to both of these modern images of Zorro persona!
Zorro pulls a pistol!
Zorro wearing a bandana!
But at least he's wearing the eye mask.
It seems that Zorro's image has continuously changed and evolved over the years
- from creator (Johnston McCulley) original vision.
The Mark of Zorro (1920) - Douglas Fairbanks Sr.
Zorro's Fighting Legion (1939) Movie Serial Starring Reed Hadley
The Mask of Zorro (1998) Starring Antonio Banderas
I also noticed that in the Mark of Zorro (1940) Zorro doesn't use a bullwhip?
While Reed Hadley in Zorro’s Fighting Legionserial (1939) surely does.
