Photo of the Day

Michael Rennie as Father Junipero Serra, Richard Egan as Jose Mendoza and Anthony Quinn as Capt. Gaspar de Portola in SEVEN CITIES OF GOLD

I never saw this film and from reading the synopsis of the story (the founding of California) I always thought it was a Western but just looking at this photo it's clearly not and along with these great actors the cast listed at IMDb includes Jeffrey Hunter and Rita Moreno, among others. This seriously looks good. It's available on iTunes and Amazon download (which I don't like to purchase because of the DRM protection thingy which limits the ways one can view it).

This is a very good movie. Well done with many great actors and spectacular scenery. Epic, with plenty of action and an excellent story. Renie and Hunter standout in their roles. Egan and Quinn are their usual selves. I have only a old transfer of this movie, and I'm looking for a widescreen DVD of this which is one of my all time favorites.

One good thing about Amazon is that if you have Amazon Prime you can watch mass quantities of Peplums for free. I got prime to save on shipping so the movies are a bonus.
