In keeping with the 13th century epic poem from which this film was derived ("El Poema de Fernan Gonzales") Santoni's path is smoothed by the celestial intervention of patron saints Milan and Santiago. Among the big names picking up a few tax-free dollars in The Castilian are Cesar Romero, Linda Darnell, Alida Valli and Fernando Rey.The Castilian featuring Espartaco Santoni and Frankie Avalon is available for rent or purchase on Apple TV, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, available for rent or purchase on Prime Video, and 1 other.
