Gorgeous portrait of Tyrone Power and Jean Peters in CAPTAIN FROM CASTILE… by New York  artist, Gargink.

i haven’t been able to find out anything about this artist.

The film came out in 1947 and was the story of the Spanish conquest of the Aztecs in Mexico. It was Jean Peters’s first film and the cast included Cesar Romero as Cortez who led the invasion.
it was a big budget, Technicolour feature from Twentieth Century Fox – “THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING!”  according to the advertising.

I can’t comment on historical accuracy.

Tyrone Power

  1. There are a number of publicity photos for this film on the internet, but this one is very similar to your first image.

  2. I don’t think this artist has caught Tyrone facially at all. If I had been shown this without the logo I would have been hard pressed to identify him! I find the film gorgeous to look at but a bit on he dull side.
