Siblings Joyce (Helen Christian) and Philip Andrews (Reed Howes) run a company building a railroad track between the USA and Mexico, but crooked businessman Marsden (Noah Beery) wants to take over their contract, and he has hired outlaw El Lobo (Richard Alexander) to help him in achieving that goal. And El Lobo and his men don't exactly shy away from breaking the law to help their boss. Joyce and Philip set high hopes in James Vega (John Carroll), the third shareholder in their company, to help them sort things out with Marsden, especially since Vega is a direct descendant of legendary Zorro ... but James proves to be a disappointment, an effeminate playboy who has little interest in railroads let alone fighting, and he seems more than ready to sell his shares to Marsden - but he never does, because to noone's knowledge but his servant Renaldo (Duncan Renaldo), James Vega is actually Zorro the masked avenger, and Zorro soon becomes the railroad's fiercest defender, saving it from numerous acts of sabotage, gathering evidence concerning Marsden's involvement in the whole affair. After numerous chases by foot, car, train, truck and even airplane, shootout after shootout and a few fistfights in between, El Lobo's men actually manage to get their hands on Zorro and unmask him ... but by that time, the local police and Joyce and Philip's men have long grown wise to El Lobo's hideout, and it all ends in a big shootout, with the side of the law triumphing after James Vega has managed to free himself and turned the tide. And in the end, he even gets the girl, Joyce that is, who has previously thought very little of him.

 

Ok, so the story of this serial might be less than special, John Carroll might not be the most charismatic leading man, and turning Zorro from a freedom fighter into the protector of a railroad line is a bit of a demotion, but still, Zorro Rides Again is great fun, it's very fast-paced, features plenty of action including some rather inventive set pieces, and the story, clichéd as it might be, never loses itself in the onscreen goings-on. In a word, this serial is plenty of fun.
