The Zorro television companion: a critical appreciation
"This book documents a television legend, from Johnston McCulley's creation of the character in 1919 to the 1957 ABC premier and beyond. It introduces the actor behind the mask, Guy Williams; reveals the secrets of Zorro's fencing technique and daredevil stunts; and discusses cast, costumes, sets, crew and music. Chapters 4 through 9 deal with the content of the first two seasons as well as the four one-hour specials on Walt Disney Presents. Plot summaries are provided for each episode. Concluding chapters discuss the cultural significance of the legend outside of America, particularly in Argentina, where Guy Williams lived and basked in the fame of a pop-culture hero."--BOOK JACKET.
