EL CID (BLU RAY)
One of the most spectacular mega-productions ever made, El Cid stars Academy Award® winners Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren in two of their legendary performances.
Anthony Mann masterfully directs this classic tale of the 11th-century hero El Cid (Heston) who fought to unite Spain and drive out the Moorish invaders. Known as history's ' compassionate warrior', the film follows El Cid’s remarkable journey from peace-broker accused of treason to the King’s fighting champion, and later from exiled hero to legendary martyr.
Nominated for three Academy Awards®, including Miklós Rósza's rousing memorable score, El Cid is a monumental achievement of epic scale storytelling and sweeping Technicolor drama.
