The Italian version was released in Italy in August 1940. The Spanish version of the film, known as "Sin novedad en El Alcazar!" was released in Spain in October 1940. After the war, the film was re-released in Italy under the new title 'Alcazar' with significant cuts. All references to the involvement of Italy in the Spanish Civil War as well as the cruelty of the Republicans were excised to avoid any political debate. See more »

Aware of the precariousness of the situation is dug in the Alcázar with 1,800 people in their position where resisted constant attacks and bombings until the arrival of the national troops on September 27. Film key of the first post-war, it will provide the features more representative of militarism, patriotism exacerbated, respect for tradition that prevailed in those years Carried Out in co-production with Italy, there were two versions, in Italian and Spanish, both directed by the Italian Augusto Genina. Carried Out throughout 1940, is a exaltation of the resistance of Toledo Alcázar during the Spanish Civil War, defended by a group of soldiers, commanded by Colonel Moscardó. For the filmmaker Augusto Genina, his film was a response to the "revolution destructive" of "The battleship Potemkin" because what the was a "constructive revolution". The film, honored with the "Mussolini Cup" in the "Festival of Venice" in 1940, and praise theatrically even by Michelangelo Antonioni, was recently restored in Italy with the collaboration of Filmoteca Spanish. Are magnificent special effects that were made in the bombing raids on the Fortress, and have become a real historic document the filmed sequences in the real settings intact only one year after the end of the civil war. Outside political connotations this is a definite film historic worthy of view.
