|Details||This fantastic full colour stone-litho printed British quad has survived in rolled condition since 1947. The sumptious use of colours marvelously recreates the 16th Century Spanish conquest of Mexico. The incredibly detailed small touches include the very fine necklace with a cross worn by Jean Peters together with the Spanish style earings, hair, make-up and clothing. Alfred Newman's score is one of the earliest soundtracks to be released as a separate album. It consisted of 18 minutes of music on 3 double-sided 78rpm records. The smoky usage of the colours gold and ochre set the scene perfectly and the Spanish armour looks magnificent. Cesar Romero is splendid in the role of Hernando Cortez and ofcourse later went on to play The Joker in 1966's "Batman."|
