Don Q Son of Zorro

1 
In the long chain of noble 
names - warriors, conquerors,
statesmen - whose brilliant
lives are written in the
story of Spanish conquest,
the name of De Vega stands
   well to the fore -

2
A De Vega stood with Balboa
when he discovered the Pacific.
A De Vega fought with Pizarro
in the conquest of Peru. On
"The Night of Tears", when
Cortes drenched the new world
with the best blood of old Spain,
a young De Vega died in armor.

3
Though the home of the 
De Vegas has long been
on California soil, the
eldest son of each new
generation returns to Spain
for a period of travel
      and study.

4
Don Cesar de Vega,
the son of Zorro -
lately come to Spain -

5
"It is a beautiful 
afternoon, seņor."

6
"It is a beautiful 
 life, Robledo."

7
"Your horses are
 below, seņor."

8
"Your California whip."

9
In the Palace, the Queen
has an uneasy task - to
keep her visiting cousin,
the Archduke Paul of
   Austria, amused.

10
His Imperial and Royal
Highness, the Archduke
Paul, Prince of Austria
     and Hungary -

11
"To the beautiful Queen
of a beautiful country -
a country of romance
      and love."

12
"My dear Paul, you are
such a responsibility - you
must behave yourself while
    you are in Spain."

13
The Students' Club -

14
"Wake up! Siesta is over."

15
"Be quiet, you wild
westerner! Want me
to hit you with this?"

16
"I am with Don Cesar.
I am Don Fabrique
    Borusta."

17
"Where did you learn 
      the whip?"

18
"In California. My father 
taught me. My father is 
the greatest man in 
       America."

19
"This is your invitation
to the Archduke's Ball."

20
"I can get another."

21
"I'll show you a trick
    with a candle."

22
"Bring your arm a 
 little forward."

23
"That is Don Sebastian of
   the Queen's Guard."

24
"I am sorry, seņor - my
sincere apologies. Of
course this was no 
place to indulge in
   marksmanship."

25
"For two pins I'd
twist your nose."

26
"My father always said,
'When you are in the 
right, fight. When you
  are in the wrong,
  acknowledge it'."

27
"Your Majesty, there is
some excitement in the
       square."

28
"My whip, please."

29
"I am not in the 
   wrong now."

30
"I haven't been so 
entertained since I 
  came to Spain."

31
"You know - my father is
the greatest swordsman
     in America."

32
"That's marvelous! I want
    to know that man."

33
"Have that young man 
   brought here."

34
"Sebastian, fetch that
young man. We are
impatient to have 
    him here."

35
"What do you want?"

36
"Just a little clay,
     seņorita."

37
"You flatter me."

38
"But no, seņorita. That
is impossible. You are
    too beautiful."

39
"Where is the man 
 with the whip?"

40
"Count Sebastian - if
you please, seņor - I
 saw where he went."

41
"I have told you my 
name. Now tell me 
      yours."

42
"Dolores."

43
"Dolores - a beautiful
         name."

44
The home of General de 
Muro, Lord Chamberlain
of the Royal Household,
trusted adviser of the
       Queen -

45
"General de Muro, I am
searching for a man who
dropped over the wall
 into your garden."

46
"I shall see you again."

47
"You presume -"

48
"I assume -"

49
"By order of the Queen?"

50
"Is this your daughter
Dolores grown up?
Where have you been
   keeping her?"

51
"At school in England.
  She has but just
     returned."

52
"I beg that I may
   come again."

53
"To-night?"

54
 "The young man Your
Majesty desired to see."

55
"I am Cesar de Vega
  of California."

56
"My father loved your
    father well."

57
"Paul, Don Cesar should
belong to us. His father
is a grandee of Spain."

58
"Gallant actions, Don Cesar!
How did you acquire such 
skill? Who taught you?"

59
"The greatest man in 
America, your Majesty -
     my father."

60
"Get out of here,
  you fat oaf."

61
"What are you doing
     to-night?"

62
"We shall go out together,
      nicht wahr?"

63
"We are responsible to
Austria for his safety.
Sebastian, you must
   go with them."

64
"He will be our
  duenna, eh?"

65
An Archduke's night out -

66
"Our duenna - objecting
   again. Come on!"

67
"Cesar went out the
other door. Hurry!"

68
"You think you leave 
  this place, eh?"

69
"When I am ready."

70
"What's the matter 
with you - have you
  an engagement?"

71
"Yes, with a pretty
       girl."

72
"Fine! We shall keep it."

73
"Go to General de
  Muro's home."

74
"Go to General de
  Muro's home."

75
General de Muro's 
     home -

76
"Seems ages since this 
afternoon when I met
you. I am happy now."

77
"My - my handkerchief."

78
"'With love's light wings
did I o'erperch these
       walls -'"

79
"Stay but a little - hear
   me only a moment -"

80
"A dark man is coming
into your life - from
    California."

81
"Oh, you are the
Californian with
   the whip!"

82
"General de Muro,
you have known 
me all my life -"

83
"I beg you to regard me
as a suitor for the hand
  of your daughter."

84
"This dark man will think
you beautiful - he will risk
       all for you."

85
"One marriage."

86
"Dolores!"

87
"'O cursed spite
That severs those who
         should unite.'"

88
"Adios."

89
"To the finest young
man I have met in
      Spain -"

90
"Don Cesar - of California."

91
"He's a good guitar 
   player, too."

92
Fabrique Borusta, scheming
his devious way into
society, little suspected
that grim events were
shaping to engulf him.

93
The Archduke's Ball -

94
"You go too far, your
      Highness."

95
"Ach, how can you
be so foolish! I am
 giving you aid."

96
"Come, Sebastian, we
shall have a game 
    of cards."

97
"You will pardon me if I
make love too quickly."

98
"You should be lucky
in cards - you are so
devilishly unlucky
     in love."

99
"See that raging 
torrent below -"

100
"My heart is like that -
I love you - I want you
   to be my wife."

101
"You are a very bad 
loser, Don Sebastian.
A - very - bad - loser."

102
"Just say that it 
is not hopeless."

103
"My rose of the garden.
  Then you do care."

104
"Don Cesar de Vega -
   of California."

105
"The son of my
friend Zorro?"

106
"Why have you not visited 
us? Your father and I were
as brothers. My house and
all that I have are yours."

107
"Your Highness! The
young couple must
be betrothed. They
kissed each other."

108
"Ach, Sebastian, you're
stupid. You let a young
Californian come right
under your nose and
take your damsel away."

109
"Fetch that young
  rascal here."

110
"Are we to congratulate
you and the Seņorita
       Dolores?"

111
"Who told you this?"

112
"Your Highness, there is
someone here who does 
not belong. Have I your 
permission to correct 
  that situation?"

113
"He has the nimble fingers -
and a whip. These orders
and decorations - how do
you come by them? Not
by gallantry, evidently!"

114
"Call out the guard 
and attend the card 
       room."

115
"With profound sorrow I
announce that His Imperial
   Highness is dead."

116
"You bring upon Spain
such shame as she has
never known. A royal
guest has fallen by
    your sword."

117
"You know where I 
 was. Tell them."

118
"What will come of this?"

119
"He will be executed 
immediately to avoid
  an international
    complication."

120
"Where were you?"

121
"For the love I bear your 
father, I give you this
chance to escape disgrace."

122
"Dolores, by all I hold
sacred, I did not do 
     this thing."

123
"My father always said,
'When Life plays you a 
trick, make it a trick
for a trick.' Adios."

124
"Where is that statement?"

125
"I'm not a fool. I placed 
it in the hands of a 
  friend - sealed."

126
"On my death it will be
opened - so you see my 
life is valuable to you."

127
"I am poor and ambitious.
You have influence. A
marriage with Dolores
would give you great
wealth - and power."

128
"What do you want?"

129
"Persuade General de Muro
to have me appointed
  Civil Governor."

130
"It is useless to search
further. By this time
the body has been
washed out to sea."

131
Don Cesar's apartments -

132
"Come secretly to the
ruins of the De Vega
castle. I have important
work for each of you."

133
In California, Zorro
receives a letter -

134
"Bernardo, do you recall -
in this room - some thirty
       years ago -"

135
"ZORRO!"

136
"Till I need you again."

137
"We go to Spain at 
once. Make ready."

138
"I need you again."

139
In Spain, a new Civil
     Governor -

140
- and his new servant -

141
  "Tell Don Sebastian
this is quite satisfactory -
       as usual."

142
"These many months 
have I respected 
  your grief -"

143
"Only through you can 
the De Muro blood 
survive. It is your 
 duty to marry -"

144
"You presume -"

145
That night - at the ruins
of the De Vega castle -

146
"He receives money 
from Don Sebastian -
    regularly -"

147
"They pretend to be
close friends, but Don
Sebastian seems to live
in mortal terror of
  Don Fabrique -"

148
"That is what I wanted 
       to know."

149
"- she has had time
    to forget -"

150
"I give you my word
the marriage contract
will be signed on the
   appointed day."

151
The long months, the dark,
empty days, the persistent
urging, had worn away
Dolores' resistance. She no
longer had strength to
oppose her father's will.

152
"Father, this means
  my whole life."

153
"Now, my darling, 
we have gone all 
over this ground -"

154
"Cesar is dead."

155
"Sit down and sign."

156
"He lives!"

157
"Search the grounds
thoroughly. I am going
   to the Palace."

158
"Colonel Matsado is a
ferret, resourceful and
ruthless. He is sure
   to catch him."

159
"Don Cesar lives!"

160
"He must die or it's all
over with both of us!"

161
Colonel Matsado's
 headquarters -

162
"Whip, huh! I'll use his 
whip to tie him to my 
    saddle horn!"

163
"Stop at Ramon's inn and
tell him to have a good
meal ready for me. Now
   get out of here!"

164
"Now they are sending
this bone-crusher,
Matsado, to meddle."

165
"I know him. A loud-
mouthed, one-eyed 
     fellow."

166
Early the next morning -
    Ramon's Inn -

167
"Master, the great Colonel 
Matsado is coming here
to eat. You better go."

168
"That is why I am here."

169
"Excellency! That is
Colonel Matsado's food.
I have no other to 
    give him."

170
"So much the better."

171
"Caramba! I am hungry.
  Where is my food?"

172
"Seņor, I do not know
you, but what little
food I have is yours.
      Join me."

173
"I am Colonel Matsado."

174
"Not the great Colonel 
      Matsado?"

175
"You are on your 
way to the city?"

176
"On Queen's business -
to the Civil Governor."

177
"Don Fabrique, eh? Do
you already know him?"

178
"No, I have not 
 yet met him."

179
"But I am acquainted 
with his colleague, 
    Sebastian."

180
"Charming fellow!"

181
"You are well known in 
the city, I suppose."

182
"Who the hell are you?"

183
"You may call 
  me Don Q."

184
"Colonel, I drink to
the success of your
enterprise, whatever
    it may be."

185
"It is nothing. Merely
taking a man whose
reputation hangs from
the handle of a whip."

186
"Get out. I don't want 
   to be disturbed."

187
"I drink to the success 
   of my enterprise."

188
"His plans are all
made - he is ready,
even now, to act."

189
"You sneak - you are
coming with me - I'm
not through with you."

190
"Tell your master that
   Matsado is here."

191
"Colonel Matsado is here."

192
"What have you already
done about this man 
       Cesar?"

193
"We have his servant,
but he refuses to talk."

194
"Have him brought here."

195
"Just how important 
is the capture of 
    this man?"

196
"The Queen's orders -"

197
"I know all that.
But what is there
 in it for me?"

198
"Don Sebastian will
   pay anything."

199
"When I capture him,
shall I take him to 
the Queen or - kill 
       him?"

200
"Kill him! Kill him!"

201
"That's the information 
  I wanted from you."

202
"Get out. My methods 
permit no witnesses."

203
"We are going to take 
 Fabrique with us."

204
"Now yell!"

205
"My methods always 
succeed. He will show
   us the way now."

206
"Death and damnation!
You are coming with
us! This Cesar must
  be identified!"

207
After fruitless searching -

208
"Return to the Governor's 
         house."

209
"Two of you soldiers
 stay here and keep
  your eyes open."

210
"Where is Don Fabrique?"

211
"They have all ridden 
  away with Colonel 
   Matsado, seņor."

212
"You two stay here - and 
 keep your eyes open."

213
"He hides in the ruined 
castle of his fathers."

214
"To the De Vega castle!"

215
In Spain, Zorro picks
     up a trail -

216
"Surround this place!
Rally at the sound 
    of a shot."

217
"You know something 
about that murder
and, by the Eternal,
you're going to tell me!"

218
"I KNOW WHO DID IT!
 I HAVE THE PROOF 
     WITH ME!"

219
"Shoot him!"

220
"Stop!"

221
"I am in command here."

222
"I call upon you to 
     surrender."

223
"If I do, I shall be the 
first of my name to
surrender within these 
       walls."

224
"Why don't you shoot?"

225
"Close in on him!"

226
"I do not know who 
you are, but you
  are welcome."

227
"Father!"

228
"Father, that man has the 
 proof of my innocence."

229
"Give me that card!"

230
"I arrest you in the 
name of the Queen."

231
"My old friend, I need
not tell you how this 
    grieves me -"

232
"Have you seen this one?"

233
"Arrest that man."

234
"Your son is a chip of 
the old block. He's the
  only man who ever
     bested me."

235
"Have you seen this one?"
