"...Alfred Newman's score is close to his best from a 40-year career and one of screen history's most performed..."

Product Description:

Tyrone Power stars as Pedro de Vargas, a swashbuckling Spanish nobleman with a heart of gold in this 16th-century action adventure. Pedro first shows his mettle when he helps a friend escape from slavery and then rescues a fair maiden from the men of the cruel slaveholder. But the slaveholder, who is a Spanish inquisitor, exacts his revenge by charging Pedro and all his family with heresy. After Pedro's sister is tortured to death, a friend sneaks into the prison and arms Pedro with a sword. Valiant Pedro uses the weapon to kill his enemy and escapes from the prison with his parents. Now a fugitive on the run, Pedro enlists with Cortez's campaign to conquer Mexico--and that's just the first act. From here on out, CAPTAIN FROM CASTILLE details the sordid adventures of Pedro and Cortez in this romantic historical re-creation of the tragic fall of Old Mexico. Between Power's charisma, the historical adventure, and lavish production values, CAPTAIN FROM CASTILLE is fine entertainment.

Plot Synopsis:

This sweeping epic follows a Spanish nobleman who seeks his fortune by enlisting with Cortez's campaign to conquer Mexico. When the inquisitor who chased him from Spain is found murdered, he must face suspicions and possible execution.
