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

Our dream was short.
I know. There is no place hidden for a man like you. There must be thousands who would gladly part. Why you? Why me?
Please, let me carry away an image of you smiling.
It would be a lie. I will beseech God with my prayers. I will tell Him He must bring you back to me. I must tell God how much I need you.
Then we *will* see each other again.

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!'
