The film features Captain Esteban (Ron Leibman
) as an acting "Alcalde" (also known as an "Alcalde ordinario"). Wikipedia defines an alcalde as a "traditional Spanish municipal magistrate, who had both judicial and administrative functions. An alcalde was, in the absence of a corregidor, the presiding officer of the Castilian cabildo (the municipal council) and judge of first instance of a town.

The office of the alcalde was signified by a staff of office, which they were to take with them when doing their business". See more
