Fantasy Island


Back in 1981, the series "Fantasy Island" did an episode that featured the actress/singer Charo where she assisted a Zorro-like character, and did some fencing with, I think, the actor Caesar Danova. Does anyone recall this episode, or how we might go about finding it??

Re: Fantasy Island


A combined Google/IMDb search reveals that Charo was blessed to be part of three classic 'Fantasy Island' episodes, including the series finale in 1984. However, it was her first episode, season five's 'Mr. Nobody/La Liberatora', in which she appeared during the second segment.

A flamboyant classical guitarist named Delores DeMercia (Charo) lives out her fantasy that involves tracing her roots to the legendary (outlaw) El Lobo Rojo during the days of Spanish California. - Wikipedia

Unfortunately, season five has yet to receive a DVD release (only the first three seasons have been released to date). Your best bet is to watch for it on a cable TV airing. The US channel Universal HD ( http://www.universalhd.com ) has the rights to the series and is currently airing several episodes back to back during the day on Mondays.

Getty Images has some publicity photos (albeit watermarked) from the episode, one with Charo wielding a rapier. Click on the episode title under 'Keywords' to see the gallery.

Cesare Danova did a few swashbucklers in his early career in Europe; still on the lookout for a rare 1952 film called 'Maschera Nera' (Black Mask), in which he fences with (and presumably courts) a lady on a staircase.
