Republic's Zorro-esque serials[edit]

Does anybody else think that Republic's serials that used their Zorro costumes, etc., but not the names should be recognized here, since most of the acknowledged Zorro serials weren't really any closer to McCulley's work? In fact, the officially Zorro-less The Vigilantes Are Coming, with its 1844 California setting, is closer than any except Zorro's Fighting Legion. Most that used the name are essentially indistinguishable from Man with the Steel Whip and Don Daredevil Rides Again. Indeed, you could change the title of Zorro's Black Whip to The Black Whip, remove the big credit "card" for McCulley/Zorro, and nobody would take it to be anything but another unlicensed rip-off, just like those two.
