About Cervantes

Cervantes is a highly fictionalized 1967 film biography of the early life of Miguel de Cervantes (1547–1616). It was the first screen biography of the author. Directed by Vincent Sherman, and filmed in color, it stars Horst Buchholz as Cervantes, Gina Lollobrigida as a prostitute with whom he becomes involved, José Ferrer as Hassan Bey, the Turk who held Cervantes in captivity, Louis Jourdan as Cardinal Giulio Acquaviva, and Fernando Rey as King Philip II. Filming began in 1966 and the movie was released in several countries between 1967-1969. Released in the U.S. as a B-movie, and retitled The Young Rebel, the film went nearly unnoticed at the box office and did not do well critically.
