Dream of Zorro (1952) aka Sign of Zorro
The grandson of Zorro is an infantile nudnick who plays triangle in an orchestra. Having so sense of the world he dresses like an over grown child. Brought home by his grandfather who wants to have him become Zorro. Cringe worthy things happen.
Bad all around action comedy has horrible jokes, embarrassing performances and weak action sequences. While definitely not helped by a dubbing that gives the young Zorro an effeminate voice the poorly done physical jokes and worse verbal ones just make this film nigh unwatchable.
I will be haunted by our hero's childish dress for years to come. The over done hat and the rest of the costume is the sort of thing you have to see to disbelieve.
I hate this film a great deal.
If you ever run across you'll know you've reached cinematic hell
