When it became clear to actor Frank Latimore that he wasn't getting anywhere in Hollywood, he packed his bags and headed for Europe. That was in 1949; by the early 1960s, Latimore was one of the Italian film industry's premiere action stars. In Balboa: Conquistador of the Pacific, Latimore plays the title role. Told episodically, the film details the 16th century explorer's various conquests, capped by his "claiming" of the Pacific Ocean. Pilar Cansinos costars in this splashy costume adventure.
