Ghost of Zorro 2

Chapter Two- "Forged Orders"
by 1949 serials had gotten shorter- this second chapter is only 14 minutes long. used to be the chapters after the first one were about 20 minute longs. I think Clayton uses a slightly different voice for Zorro, though it wouldn't surprise me if they had to redub a voice in there under that mask. Of course, since it was a stunt double most of the time, they probably needed to the relooping of lines occasionally.

Rita here has a lot of moxie, more than a lot of the serial heroines. The renegade "Indian" playing cards looks like Jon Lovitz, who would later play Tonto on Saturday Night Live occasionally.
