Trivia

The film was re-release in July 3 1950 with a new title, "Espíritu de una raza", and six minutes less of footage. Since Spain was by then an US ally, Franco's censors decided to cut all the scenes containing fascist salutes and add some dialogues to underline the anti-communist sense of the movie, instead of its former totalitarian spirit.
