Life Magazine / 18 August 1958 Issue

Here we have a group of young Zorros completely surrounding Guy Williams/Zorro while he takes time to sign autographs in California at Disneyland in 1958. Zorro was so popular that Life Magazine did a photo spread on him.

Do you think he signed all of those with a Z?

It seems that Zorro had very young fans. They look great!

I did like Zorro, and that second pic with all the little Zorros is so funny and cute at the same time!

I would love to have seen him riding around Disneyland on Toronado.
How about you?

Can you imagine walking down to Frontierland only to run into Guy Williams?

He rode a beautiful horse. Would have been great to see him on that magnificent animal.
