The Mask of Zorro

Trivia: Catherine Zeta Jones, after her fight with Zorro, her dress rips off. She turns around to grab the hat and you can see her nipple for one frame.

Trivia: Joaquin Murrieta Orozco actually existed. He was a bandit in the old Spanish California during the Gold Fever; chased by a Texan called Harry Love in 1853. When he was trapped with another bandit, "three fingers Jack", both were decapitated and their heads exhibited in glass jars.

Trivia: Antonio Banderas was the first authentic Spanish actor (he was born in Spain) who played the Zorro character. All of the previous actors in old movies or TV series only had the Spanish appearance or ancestry.

Trivia: The actors had to go through a gruelling fencing training for their roles. A master fencer who had previously coached Errol Flynn for this role was hired. This was because they were using REAL blades in the fighting scenes.

Trivia: As part of his deception, Diego pretends to be Alejandro's manservant Bernardo. Bernardo was Zorro's mute servant in the books. This makes Elena hearing "Bernardo" hum to Alejandro's horse quite humorous.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Captain Love and Antonio Banderas (as Zorro) meet in the hallway of the hacienda, two guards rush down the hallway and drop their rifles and swords. Zorro asks them to bend over and then proceed to kick/nudge them out the window. If you watch carefully, you'll notice that the guard on the right (furthest from Zorro) reacts to the kick too early.
