There were a lot of 50s and early 60s swashbuckling costume dramas that must have played in saturday afternoon double features in this country.I didn't get a chance to see a lot of them until the middle 60s,when they would show them on local tv on saturday afternoons.This is one that I didn't get a chance to see until December,1973.There isn't a whole lot more that I can add to what Dinky said.I think that Chelo,as the heroine,is simply ravishing,and,depending on how your tastes run,maybe Steve is quite delectable,too.And she's the only one in the film whose chest rivals his in size.
