CinemaScope revives the glorious days when Father Junipero Serra stopped the Conquistadors from looting Seven Cities of Gold...turned them to raising the wondrous seven mission cities of God! See more »
Inaccurate but interesting tale of the founding of San Diego Mission
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.
