Der Hauptmann von Kastilien: Directed by Henry King. With Tyrone Power, Jean Peters, Cesar Romero, Lee J. Cobb. The invasion of Mexico by Cortez, as seen by a young Spanish officer fleeing the Inquisition.

“The conquest of Mexico by Hernan Cortez in the early 16th Century is the backdrop of a story of love,courage and adventure in this entertaining swashbuckler. The movie was Jean Petersu0026#39;s first and sheu0026#39;s a beguiling creature in this ,although her acting leaves a lot to be desired at this point in her career.Cesar Romero as Cortez paints an entertaining portrayal of this ruthless opportunist. The stunning color-cinematography is something to behold. Captured on the screen is an erupting volcano in the background of some of the action. Tyrone Power does his usual competent job in this kind of adventure story.The movie is very entertaining but it does drag a bit in its 2 and a half hour running-time.”
