| "The Civil Guard dies but does not surrender "
Interesting example of the 'cinema of La Cruzada'. By 1949 or more nuanced approach to the Spanish Civil War is possible. The director Arturo Ruiz Castillo was a former Republican and a friend and colleague of the poet Lorca.

The hero, played by Alfredo Mayo, is a moderate, non communist Republican who saves the life of a Marquis' daughter and journeys with her to the hillside shrine where pro-Nationalist Civil Guards and civilians have taken refuge.

Some effective scenes such as the aerial combat sequence and the chapel service under bombardment.
