While Cannon for Cordoba, also known as Dragon Master, wasn't praised for its historical accuracy, many critics admired Paul Wendkos' direction which put a distinctive mark on the proceedings. Other attributes were the stunning scenery (shot on location in Spain) and the score by Elmer Bernstein. Wendkos had worked with the composer before on Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969), which was number three in the many sequels that popped up after the astonishing success of The Magnificent Seven in 1960.
