The Warlord

This is the movie that inspired the Warlord rules in Day of Battle.
Here is a short excerpt from it.

Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, This underrated medieval epic stars Charlton Heston as a Norman Knight who takes possession of a coastal castle and tells of his struggle to defend it from barbarians. A strong supporting cast comprising of Richard Boone, Guy Stockwell, Rosemary Forsyth and Maurice Evans make this worth looking at. The majestic music score was composed by Jerome Moross and two action cues were scored by Hans J. Salter.  ”ALL CONTENT BELONGS TO THE ORIGINAL COPYRIGHT HOLDERS”.

El Cid

Anthony Mann`s sweeping epic of Spain`s legendary hero portrayed by Charlton Heston remains the best of the historical epic`s produced by Samuel Bronston.The score was provided by Hollywood`s premier composer of epic music, the late and truly great Miklos Rozsa. The suite consists of …Main Titles / Love Scene / The El Cid March / Exit Music. The exit music is a beautiful choral arrangement, which was used at the movies original opening in 1961.
