Don Quijote
On Thursday, December 15 at 6:45.
Directed by Rafael Gil, Spain, 1947, 137 minutes. In Spanish.

Don Quixote by Rafael Gil is the first sound film version in Spanish of the great classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, and it was the longest film version of the novel up to that time. Faithful to the storyline of the novel, the film follows the book in its dialogue and order of episodes, unlike other film versions that scrambled up the order of the adventures.
