    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. Filmed in early 1952, the English-language version of Les Amants de Tolède, retitled Lovers of Toledo, was made available in the U.S. the following year.
