Les Amants de Toledo was filmed in four different versions: French, Spanish, Italian and English. The cast, however, remained constant throughout. Pedro Armendariz stars as Don Blas, the seemingly corrupt police chief of Toledo, Spain. When Ines (Alida Valli), the girl friend of condemned insurrectionist Fernando (Gerard Landry), pleads for her lover's life, Don Blas shows mercy--if Ines will agree to marry him. Theirs is a hate-hate relationship until, unexpectedly, Don Blas shows himself to have a glimmer of humanity. Now in love with her husband, Ines is in a quandary when Fernando re-enters her life. Filmed in early 1952, the English-language version of Les Amants de Toledo, retitled Lovers of Toledo, was made available in the U.S. the following year.
