Maven was with family Christmas (2009) watching
El Dorado with John Wane and Robert Mitchum. El Dorado, the poem used in the credits and quoted by
James Caan, was written by Edgar Allan Poe:
A gallant night
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long
Singing a song,
In search of El Dorado.
But he grew old --
This knight so bold --
And -- o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like El Dorado.
And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow --
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be --
This land of El Dorado?"
"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied --
"If you seek for El Dorado."
