Movie Info

Douglas Fairbanks returns as the great Spanish swashbuckler in this sequel to The Mark of Zorro. Don Cesar de Vega (Douglas Fairbanks) is the son of the famous masked avanger, Zorro; he's been sent to Spain to continue his education and learn the ways of his homeland. He soon becomes a favorite of the local dignitaries, but this does him little good when he's falsely accused of murder. Faking his own suicide, Don Cesar goes underground, and posing as Zorro, begins his own investigation of the killing; eventually his father arrives, giving us two Zorros for the price of one. Mary Astor plays Dolores de Muro, Don Cesar's love interest, with Warner Oland and Jean Hersholt highlighting the supporting cast; Donald Crisp, who plays Don Sebastian, also directed.

Critic Reviews for Don Q Son of Zorro

[Hersholt's] role isn't as strong as the one he had in Greed, but it shows him capable of intense characterization that registers heavily.

Named one of the year's ten best films by The New York Times… actually outdoes its predecessor, with a stronger and more sophisticated plot, better pacing, more interesting and complex characterizations, grander production values and set design

Don Q is probably the surest-fire of all the Fairbanks pictures. It has all the stuff of which box-office knock-outs are made -- thrills, romance and speed -- and yet it never yields for an instant to the dark forces of hokum.

This plot simply exists to create difficulties for the athletic Fairbanks to overcome... His movements are almost poetically graceful, and what is more they are infused with a light spirit of comedy.

A familiar plot, but with Don Q, the son of Zorro, played by Fairbanks, and the movie also has Zorro, played by Fairbanks as well! This is a fun movie, I really enjoyed it, it's a nice sequel to the Mark of Zorro.
