Storyline

Trivia

Studio publicity material credited René Cardona as co-director and Jorge Stahl Jr. as Lucien Ballard's camera operator, but it is unknown if they ever worked on this picture and likely that they had been only hired to make sure union requirements were fulfilled. See more »

Inaccurate but interesting tale of the founding of San Diego Mission
11 March 2001 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Done on grand scale, this is the tale of Father Junipero Serra and the founding of the California Missions, in particular, the first at San Diego. Rennie, Quinn, and Egan turn in good performances and the story moves along quite well, even though history is played with fast and loose in this treatment. Of particular interest is the style and treatment of the Indians encountered by the mercenaries and the priest-there is much more realism than most films of this era. The action scenes are done well and the obvious, but inevitable conclusion makes the point. A good watch.
