This epic 1961 film by Anthony Mann (Man of the West) stars Charlton Heston as a 11th-century hero who drives the Moors from Spain.

The unusual thing about El Cid is the degree to which technology takes over the filmmaking, as it does here with so many grandiose and bravura moments with a roving camera that don't add up to anything beyond spectacle. As an achievement of Hollywood's technical advancements in the postwar years, and also as part of the filmographies of Mann and Heston, the film is well worth a look. But it is not the artistic equal of other epics of its day, such as Lawrence of Arabia.
