El Cid at Last

One of the great sweeping epics (epics are always sweeping; must be the sand) finally makes it onto DVD. El Cid, the 1961 tale of 11th-century conquest starring Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren, just arrived in the mail. This boxed set delivers the goods, complete with a “making of” documentary, an introduction from Martin Scorsese, postcard-size stills, an illustrated comic book and a reproduction of the original souvenir program (remember when event movies came with souvenir booklets?).  elcidimage.jpg
