...Man of La Mancha (1972)

Man of La Mancha is such a beautiful and powerful musical about Miguel de Cervantes and his creation, Don Quixote, that one would assume a studio could phone a filmization home by hiring talented filmmakers. One might also assume that the filmmakers, in turn, would hire actors who can sing and the result would not have the pacing of a tortoise. One would be wrong.
