| Simon Bolivar as a Liberator
Blassetti was great director. Known from his "white telephone" films in Italy. He dressed as one expects a neo-fascict director to dress, sort of golf pants and boots.

Maximilian Schell a fantastic actor. This is a film, which has been largely forgotten.If you can find where to see it's a must.

One of the best Simon Bolivar films.

The musical score is by the Venezuelan musician Aldemaro Romero. There are a few musical themes which have become icons of music on films.

The photography is by Manuel Berenguer, a noted Spanish director of photography and the use of graded filters makes the tropical skies look as they should.

I worked as an assistant director for the crowd scenes and learned lots from the other assistants and from the movie. I will always remember the director's orders, in IItalian, which I did'nt understand.

I recommend this as a truly, historically correct film, and the master acting Schell, Schiaffino, Rabal, and the Venezuelan Tomás Henriquez, al "Negro Primero".
