The Last Stand in the Philippines

“Without a doubt our best patriotic film,” wrote Spanish film historian Emilio Sanz de Soto of this 1945 film directed by Antonio Roman. The film concerns Captain Las Moreras and his small squadron, who resisted the conquering U.S. and Filipino armies for almost a year after the end of the Spanish-American War; the film was a big success with critics and audiences in Spain when it came out—as well as a triumph of propaganda for the Franco regime.
