He Saw / She Saw - El Cid


I didn't realize this was a Criterion disc until I loaded it. A stunning film, with a cast of 'literally' thousands. This is a sweeping epic that covers a lot of ground. Heston and Loren are in their prime here as is Miklós Rózsa's score. The ending left a bit to be desired, but it was a thrill ride up to that point.


A big film, with big stars and imagery that is hard to imagine or comprehend. Sophia Loren was one good looking woman in her day.
