From novella: The Curse of Capistrano by Johnston McCulley

A Spanish aristocratic family dispatches young Diego Vega to California; on arrival he finds that his father is no longer Alcade of Los Angeles, replaced by the corrupt Don Luis Quintero who extracts whatever wealth the village might offer. Don Diego presents the public face of a dandy as he tries to rectify. The best appearance of Zorro, and one of the finest swashbucklers ever produced. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score.
