Zorro (1957)

Zorro is a masked rider who battles the unjust rulers of the pueblo of Los Angeles during the days of Spanish rule. His real identity is that of Don Diego de la Vega, the son of a wealthy landowner. Diego returns from Spain and discovers that Los Angeles is under the command of Capitan Monastario, a cruel man who relishes the misuse of his power for personal gain. Diego adopts the secret identity of Zorro, a sinister figure dressed in black, and rides to fight Monastario's injustice.

This sometimes caused problems for the actors, because they couldn't remember their "motivation" for the scenes being shot.
