| Not A Chariot In Sight
No one should be misled by this title. The story is about a Zorro like character who goes around righting some wrongs done in 16th century Spain. Hercules as played by Alan Steel is one of gang of gypsies who help out the Zorro guy who wears a red mask instead of basic black. He must have had one of the George Hamiltons as a wardrobe consultant.

The plot such as it is has the evil Don Ramiro with designs on both Don Francisco's land and Don Francisco's daughter Blanca. Her kissing cousin off in Flanders fighting one of King Philip II's wars doesn't approve because he likes her and she likes him. But dad wants peace in the valley even if it means giving up her daughter to the villain.

So the cousin dons the red mask and joins up with both gypsies and soldiers of his former regiment and if you know how Douglas Fairbanks and Tyrone Power did it in their Zorro films you know how it comes out. Some bits from Robin Hood are tossed into the mix as well.

But if you like those sword and sandal epics, plenty of swords, no sandals here though. Not a chariot in sight.
