Captain from Castile -- Plodding historical adventure begins in 1518 Spain with a don's son (Tyrone Power) escaping arrest by a corrupt agent of the Inquisition (John Sutton) to flee to the New World where he joins Cortez (Cesar Romero) in his expedition into Mexico, with dramatically hollow results. Directed by Henry King, the long hand of the Inquisition is the real villain here, though there's a muddled romantic subplot featuring Jean Peters and some colorful encounters with Aztec emissaries before the picture ends as Cortez sets off to conquer Montezuma's capital. Stylized violence and an implicit sexual relationship. (A-II) (br) 1947
