Epic film of the legendary Spanish hero, Rodrigo Diaz (”El Cid” to his followers), who, without compromising his strict sense of honour, still succeeds in taking the initiative and driving the Moors from Spain.
El Cid review by Soap2day
El Cid - one of the most watched movies of the 1961.
For 182 minutes the plot of this movie will keep you busy.
The director managed to contain in this movie all the chips inherent in the genre Action, Biography, Drama, History, Romance, War.
One of the best movies of 1961, combining all the experience of the film industry of the past years.
You have to hand it to Anthony Mann for putting together a great cast.
On the screen Andrew Cruickshank, Charlton Heston, Douglas Wilmer, Frank Thring, Gary Raymond, Geneviève Page, Hurd Hatfield, John Fraser, Raf Vallone, Ralph Truman, Sophia Loren live out their roles as in life.
