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 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. Unequalled in scope, grandeur and adventure, El Cid is an essential part of any film lover's collection.
