In several of the scenes in Mexico, a large smoke cloud is seen on the horizon. At the end of the movie smoke is shown rising from a volcano. This is most likely a fortuitous eruption of the Paricutin volcano in 1947, when the movie was filmed, standing in for the eruption of Popocatepetl on Cortez's day. See more »

I could not put it into better words. This movie has it all love,action,betrayal,adventure,misery,loyalty,jealousy,honor and Tyrone Power. I first saw this film on AMC a year ago and i love it from beginning to end. Tyrone Power gives an incredible performance as a spanish nobleman who is on the run. If anyone else likes Tyrone Power in this film be sure to check out "the eddy duchin story" and "the razor's edge" he acts better in these films . This man could act his ass off, too bad he does not get that much recognition as other classic hollywood stars. He is definitely one of my top ten favorite actors of all time.
