Holiday in Spain (1960)

Denholm Elliott and Peter Lorre star in a thriller about a tourist travelling, strangely enough, around Spain.

In Granada the terrace of the Hotel Alhambra Palace, where the stars actually stayed, appears, and in the Alhambra itself there were scenes shot in the Patio de la Ria and La Torre de las Damas.

It was banned for a while in Spain; not because of its political content, but because national pride could not stomach the scene in which a taxi ride begins in Málaga then passes Segovia’s Roman Aqueduct and the palace of the Alhambra in Granada and finally arrives in Pamplona, to experience the bull running phenomenon of the San Fermines. One hopes the passenger left a good tip!
