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. Written by KGF Vissers

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 »

This epic adventure chronicles the early life of Miguel de Cervantes, Spain's great 16th-century novelist, playwright, poet, and the author of Don Quixote. It is highly fictionalized and based on the book Cervantes by Bruno Frank. Young Cervantes takes a prestigious job as secretary to a Cardinal. He later decides to join the army in the fight against the Turks and Islam and takes part in a dangerous sea battle. Cult star Soledad Miranda appears as Nessa, a kind woman who nurses him to health after he has been beaten and then falls in love with him. This movie was filmed in Spain and Italy.
