Seven Cities Of Gold (1955) - Burn It Into Your Heart Preparing to depart Mexico City for California, 1769, Father Junipero Serra (Michael Rennie) goes rogue with the Spanish colonial rank-and-file, cueing grumbling from Captain Portola and (fictional) Lt. Mendoza (Anthony Quinn, Richard Egan), with top career-Assistant Director Robert D. Webb directing, in Seven Cities Of Gold, 1955.
Seven Cities Of Gold (1955) - The Holy Family Michael Rennie as the famed Father Junipero Serra and Richard Egan as the imagined Lt. Mendoza have been separated from their expedition in a dust storm, in New Spain (a.k.a. Mexico), 1769, and find phantom solace, in Seven Cities Of Gold, 1955.
Seven Cities Of Gold (1955) - We Will Not Be Evil Another fabricated event in the factual mission of Father Junipero Serra to 1769 California, Jeffrey Hunter as Indian Matuwir mediates a meeting with his grandfather (Guillermo Calles), with a glimpse of Rita Moreno as maiden Ula, in Seven Cities Of Gold, 1955.
Seven Cities Of Gold (1955) - How Many Wives Have You? Hard to call it anything but frolicking, in the California Pacific (likely from the Guadalajara-area Jalisco, Mexico location shoot), 1769, Spanish Lt.
