I remember seeing this movie a few times back un the mid sixties and loving it. How bad I felt for the Mayans as they are defeated by the Toltecs (or whoever) and the royal family and troops retreat to the palace. But ahh the escape via tunnel and ultimately ship, to the Gulf coast of America. And yes, the final battle with the native indians coming to the aid of the Mayans (no place to run this time!)
I now realize this movie is not on video, but does anyone have a copy of their own somehow, that would be willing to make other copies? I would pay well for one!
What about German or other foreign versions?
Please contact me even if you have no news news and simply want to talk about the movie or book (which I have).
