The Castilian (1963) Alhambra

Although mostly filmed in central Spain, La Alhambra Palace really played itself as the headquarters of the Moorish King, who spends his time picking roses, gazing at fountains, losing at chess and planning to invade Castile when the weather improves.

Remarkable as it may seem, Frankie Avalon narrates the story while strumming his lute.
