Seven Cities of Gold
1955, Historic / Epic
On an expedition from Mexico to California in 1769, Father Junipero Serra (Michael Rennie) joins a group of soldiers, led by Capt. Gaspar de Portola (Anthony Quinn), on a quest to find the seven cities of gold recounted in yore. Serra has no real desire for treasures, but instead wishes to perform missionary work. The group encounters natives and Lt. Jose Mendoza (Richard Egan) earns their trust, but when he betrays the chief's daughter (Rita Moreno), Serra must rescue the soldiers.
