Cervantes Film

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 and 1969.

Released in the U.S. as a B-movie, and retitled Young Rebel, the film went unnoticed at the box office and did not do well critically.
