MASK OF ZORRO
Item # P00129
This horse’s breastplate was used onscreen by both “Zorro” characters (portrayed by Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas) in the 1998 motion picture “The Mask of Zorro”. The black embossed leather bridle is decorated with swirling silver embroidered details and has a large circular engraved breast device in the center as seen in the film.
The original Zorro’s horse “Tornado” is first seen wearing the breastplate as part of a complete set of matching tack in the exciting opening sequence of the film when the aging Zorro (played by Hopkins) rescues a group of Mexican villagers from execution at the hands of his arch nemesis “Don Rafael Montero” (played by Stuart Wilson). After completing the rescue and throwing Montero’s guards into disarray, Zorro whistles for his trusty steed Tornado, who arrives just in time to secure Zorro’s escape from the plaza while wearing this device. The breastplate is again seen when Zorro returns to his underground hideout and then later in several scenes of the film when the “Young Zorro” (Antonio Banderas) rides his own version of Tornado using his mentor’s saddle array in several action and stunt sequences.
The breastplate is in excellent screen used condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the property master who oversaw its use on the production.
