Charlton Heston! Sophia Loren! Bigass epic! You got it, buddy: El Cid. And not just El Cid, but a 2-Disc Limited Collector’s Edition of El Cid. And man, is it tasty…
The richly romanticized tale of a real-life Castilian knight and legendary Spanish hero, EL CID stars OscarÂ®-winners Charlton Heston (Best Actor, Ben-Hur, 1960) and Sophia Loren (Best Actress, La Ciociara, 1960) in a lush realization of Middle Ages chivalry that earned director Anthony Mann (The Fall Of The Roman Empire) a Golden GlobeÂ® (Best Director, 1962). Boasting one of cinema’s most memorable final scenes along with such a stellar cast and magnificent direction, EL CID also earned three Oscar nominations, included Best Art Direction (Color), Best Music for Miklos Rozsa’s (Ben-Hur) dramatic score and Best Song.
On this, you’ve got a commentary, radio interviews with Heston and Loren, a making of, multiple featurettes, plus an intro from Martin Scorsese, a reproduction of the original 1961 souvenir program and a reproduction of the original 1961 comic book–plus six production stills. Nice.
