Epic film of the legendary Spanish hero, Rodrigo Diaz ("El Cid" to his followers), who, without compromising his strict sense of honour, still succeeds in taking the initiative and driving the Moors from Spain. Written by

One of my favorite films. One of the great scenes is El Cid's meeting with a leper on the road to his banishment. 'Only one knight in Spain would humble his King and share his water with with a leper.' The player of Lazarus is totally uncredited - it sounds like Claud Rains? surely such a key contribution to the movie should not remain unacknowledeged forty years after its filming. Similarly the closing narration is uncredited as well. 'For Spain and God!'
