Jean Peters had never acted before this film. She replaced Linda Darnell, who was originally cast in the lead but shortly before production began was taken off the picture and given the lead in Forever Amber (1947), replacing inexperienced lead actress Peggy Cummins. Peters was given the lead in this picture based on a screen test she had taken at Fox just a week before filming began that had impressed the film's producers. See more »
I think of what you do for me in Spain. I think I speak to you now. Maybe I understand better why you come here. This is my country, senor. These are my people, my gods. We not come tell you to stop loving your gods. We not come to make you slaves. Why do you do this, senor?
Pedro De Vargas:
Well, I'm afraid I haven't any answer for that. It isn't right for men to worship idols. There's only one true God.
Maybe your God and my God same God. Maybe we just call him by different names.

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.
