ZORRO "Spaniard's Secret: the Brooch"

Don't worry, you didn't miss anything.
The first two chapters appeared in other blogs...
Young Anita Cabrillo (Annette Funicello) arrives from Spain in search of her father, Don Miguel Cabrillo, but no one in Los Angeles seems to know him...or if he even exists!
Don Diego Vega (Guy Williams) and his father (George J Lewis) offer to help the girl and put her up in a guest room at their hacienda while she looks for her unseen daddy.
However, there are those who don't want Anita's search to succeed, forcing Zorro into action to save the girl's life twice...
This never-reprinted tale from Dell's Four Color Comics #1037 (1959) was illustrated by Warren Tufts and Joe Giella, but the scripter of the adaptation is unknown.
Trivia: Carlos Rivas, who played the villainous Ruiz was a Mexican-American actor who played both good and bad characters of various ethnicities during his long career from 1945 to 2000.
His real name was Oscar von Weber!
He was a founding member of Nosotros, an organization that works to improve the image and employment of Latinos in the entertainment industry.
Now, the episode itself...
