The Royal Hunt of the Sun was released in 1969 and deals with
conquistadores in Mexico, but it isn't a b movie.

Hi, this may be a complete shot in the dark but, around 1970, I was
at a cinema in Ipswich, England and I saw a film supporting the main
event. We call this a 'b' film over here and sadly these are not
shown anymore. However, the film in question begins with sunrise on
the plains of America and a native American indian worshipping the
sunrise, only to be made aware of a sound in the distance, this it
transpires, is a conquistadores saddled horse with a blood stained
saddle. We are to believe that the indian has never seen a horse
before and the film is then basically about the taming and riding of
the horse by the indian.
This film made a big impression on myself and I have remembered it
ever since for the photography and colours, and the whole structure
of the subject matter.
I have, since the advent of the internet, been trying to find out the
title and/or if it is available all to no avail. I have scoured your
files hoping to be lucky, but, alas no. So, could you possibly point
me in the right direction as I am at a loss as to what to do next.
I thank you for your help if you are able, if not, thank you for your
time in reading this.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
