Happy to report that "Zorro: The Gay Blade" seems to be as good as I remember, for a movie from 1981. Yes, Ramon is played for laughs, and Diego does double-takes, and "trains" him to be more manly as Zorro, but he accepts him, even uses his chosen name after an initial slip. Only one of the collaborateurs of the bad guys calls him a "poof" once. Otherwise the movie lets him be the daring hero.

Admittedly, my standards here are very low here, but it's a relief when you watch a movie you loved as a kid and haven't seen since then, to find out it wasn't a horrific piece of hate.
