The Mask of Zorro

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.

Continuity mistake: When Alejandro and Captain Love are fighting on the gold lift, Alejandro punches the sword out of Captain Love's hand. He grabs it and stabs it through him. When it shows the top view of the sword stuck in Captain Love, hit the pause button. Look at the sword blade going through Captain Love's stomach.Then look at the other end of the blade going out of his back. They are at different places in him.

Other mistake: Near the end of the film there is a stand-off, if you look in the sky an aeroplane flies by.

Question: After they get away from the men that say the brothers are worth 200 pesos, they run across the military and one of the brothers is shot and the other runs. After the brother that was left behind shoots himself, the lead soldier cuts off his head in a single swing with his sword. But he has one of those thin swords you always see the commanders and stuff holding during those times. Would he have really been able to remove the Brother's head in one swing like that with such a flimsy sword?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: It would depend on four things: the sharpness of the sword, the strength of the steel used to forge it, the strength of the man swinging it, and the luck to slice though one of the ligaments between the victim's vertebrae, but theoretically, yes, it's possible to sever a head with a single sword blow.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: I own the soundtrack, however the song that Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas dance to at the party is not on the soundtrack. Does anyone know where I can find the song?

shortdanzr

Chosen answer: The song is a re-arrangement of a classic Mexican folk tune 'El Sombrero Blanco' and is not available because it wasn't written by James Horner, who did all the original music for the picture. The folk song is very different from what is heard in the movie.
