At Home With ‘Zorro’

Zorro, one of the most popular characters in film fiction, has almost as many portrayers as the indestructible Tarzan. The latest of these is a handsome, 6 foot 3 inch New Yorker by birth named Guy Williams.

Williams, who is the television version of the dashing, black-caped swordsman, started life off as the son of Italian immigrants. When he was old enough to seek his own fortune, he went into the modeling field, hoping meanwhile for a chance to get into the theatre.

Off-Broadway afforded him this chance and he was able to pick up a few roles here and there which eventually landed him on TV and in the movies.

Today, Williams is a man of some affluence, but lives pretty modestly in a Spanish-type Hollywood apartment with his wife, Janice, a former model, and his son Steve, born in 1952.
