Synopsis

Zorro, a Count in disguise, makes friends with the three musketeers, actually four, and they expose a traitor who intends to reveal the new fortress plans to the French.

Opinion

The film is not a Spaghetti Western in any sense of the description. It's set in France during the period of Dumas' Musketeers, and features a Spanish nobleman who dons the mask of Zorro to rescue a kidnapped princess. It's a terrific film, though, with a warm sense of humour and plenty of swashbuckling.
