Storyline

In this romanticized biography of Spain's most celebrated novelist, young Miguel Cervantes, son of a country doctor, cockily pushes better-bred, court-connected peacock chicks aside for the post of private secretary to monsignor (soon cardinal) Acquaviva, papal envoy to king Philip II of Spain. Realizing his friendship with the Ottoman general-envoy was abused to win time while an avoidable 'crusade' was mounted, Miguel resigns but joins the Holy League's fleet. He and his brother become marked heroes, but get no serious reward and are captured by Algiers pirates for the slave market, yet set aside to bring ransom. Instead, they mount a brave slave revolt.

Trivia

Spanish star Soledad Miranda filmed many scenes in addition to the ones shown in the final cut of the film. This is apparent in numerous publicity stills of scenes cut from the film. In a magazine interview, it was revealed what happened to her scenes. Soledad and Horst Buchholz were on set together, and some French journalists were driving around set taking photographs. They published a photo of Miranda and Buchholz together in Le Figaro, which Gina Lollobrigida then saw. It caused Lollobridiga great jealousy, who wielded her star power to have all but the most essential of Miranda's scenes cut from the film. See more »

A colorful look at a neglected era
5 July 2001 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

The writing, direction, and acting in "Cervantes" are no more than serviceable, making it yet another in that long line of "costumers" which came out of the European film industry in the '50s and '60s. However, "Cervantes" has the advantage of being set in the 16th-century, when Christian and Islamic forces fought for control of the Mediterranean, and it's this rich background -- not often explored by the movies -- which gives "Cervantes" its points of interest. The casting here is also a notch better than usual, with acting honors going to Jose Ferrer as a Turkish Bey. And those viewers who dislike leading man Horst Buchholz will be pleased to learn that he's both flogged and racked in this movie and, at one point, almost beheaded.
