El Greco (1966)


Mel Ferrer plays ‘The Greek,’ although most of us prefer Doménikos Theotokópoulos, who comes to Toledo to paint an altarpiece, falls in love with a noble young lady, who he is not permitted to marry, and is accused of witchcraft and heresy by the Inquisition. As compensation, Ferrer was allowed to marry Audrey Hepburn in real life.

As the credits roll we see young Doménikos riding towards the city with San Servando and the Alcázar castle clearly visible in the distance. Later, when he is cavorting with and kissing Jerónima, he is on the banks of the Tajo river with the castle above them.
