In 1960, when Charlton Heston arrived in Spain to film " El Cid" , he met up with Orson Welles in Grenada to discuss a movie based on Lorca's life. They arranged meetings with local politicians and the authorities, but nothing ever came of the project. See more »
When the pier forms collapsed under crumpling sound of daisies, I realized that they had murdered me. They combed the cafes, the graveyards, the churches; they pried open coffins and ransacked chests and cabinets. They smashed 3 skulls to rip out their gold teeth, but they couldn't find me. They couldn't find me. No, they couldn't find me.

This should have been titled "The Misadventures of a Cute Hispanic Reporter," since the entire film is about Morales trying to find out what happened to the great poet Lorca, who is only shown in flashbacks that cancel each other out. Nothing much is ever learned of the poet, instead we are treated to a very convoluted conclusion and very good performances. This should have been much better. I give this a 5.
