After the old king has died, his succession will fall either upon his benign niece Isabella (Maria Grazina Spina) or his malevolent niece Malva (Moira Orfei) - and since Malva is sure that the king has chosen Isabella over her, she is determined to get his will - which has to be shipped to the palace from, well, somewhere - and forge it in her favour ... and to that end, she and her treacherous fiancé Garcia (Massimo Serato) hire Maciste (Alan Steel), a notorious do-gooder whom they easily trick into believing Malva has been wronged.

Thing is, without even knowing it, Isabella has Zorro on her side, who is really mild-mannered poet Ramon (Pierre Brice), her fiancé.

From here on, Zorro and Maciste trick each other numerous times, and take the king's will from one another frequently, while at the same time having to fight all kinds of outlaws ... and ultimately, Maciste gets his hands on the will, but as he is to deliver it to Malva, he is warned by Carmencita (Rosy De Leo), Isabella's maid he has a soft spot for, of his employer ... and he stashes the document away just before being tricked.

It is only now that Zorro and Maciste see the righteousness of one another, but by now, Malva has already seen to it that Isabella got arrested and the noblemen of the court do her bidding and crown her queen. Zorro and Maciste stop the coronation just in time though, put a few things right, and while the baddies get their just desserts, the heroes get their girls, Isabella and Carmencita, respectively.

 

What a silly little film, a very clumsy attempt to combine the Zorro- and Maciste-myths in some fantasy kingdom outside of time and space (ok, not outside of space, that's an exaggeration) - and its cheaply made, too, probably the shoddiest looking period piece made by director Umberto Lenzi in the early-to-mid-1960's ... and yet the film manages to be quite charming in its naivity despite (or even because of) everything, an extremely simplistic yet likeable adventure yarn that you might find easy to enjoy if you're still in touch with your inner child ... Oh, and while Alan Steel is adequate in his role but nothing special (though he turns out to be  one of the better Maciste actors), Pierre Brice is pretty amusing as Ramon/Zorro.
