An atmospheric dramatization of Cervantes' seventeenth-century tale of the self-proclaimed Spanish knight who travels the countryside with his squire, tilting at windmills as if they were dragons and trying to reform a bawdy peasant girl. This was the first of a series of co-productions and trade-offs between Universal-TV and the British Broadcasting Corporation. This was the tenth filming of the classic novel, following closely on the heels of the movie version of the musical "Man of La Mancha." Some months later came a filmed ballet adaptation with Nureyev, and still to be seen (if ever) is Orson Welles' partially completed production of the tale.
