Temujin, who later became Genghis Khan is wise, or  sometimes cunning. He goes through several heroic episodes; competing at  the Man of Men contest, falling in love with the enemy commander's  daughter, and struggling to restore his demolished hometown. Meanwhile  his steps guide him to be a great conqueror. Khan's witty, humorous side  in his adolescent years before he takes the throne.

"Genghis Khan" (1950) was the first Filipino movie to receive  international recognition and wide acclaim which was entered in the  "main competition" of the 1952 Venice Film Festival.

Manuel Conde, talking about the special screening of "Genghis Khan" for  movie director Carl Foreman and film critic James Agee, the latter of  whom was greatly responsible for bringing Genghis Khan to the 1952  Venice Film Festival where it competed with the world’s best films
:

"“I was very nervous during the screening, especially the part when the  horses came. ‘ Yun mga nakuha naming sa Binondo… Pinagtawanan kami noon  sa Times Theater' (Those we got from Binondo. We were the laughing stock  at Times Theater.) They were amazed. ‘Yun pala ang genuine Mongolian  horses. Sa America wala no’n. Sa Europe wala noon. Yung kinahihiya ko  was the asset of my movie' (Those turned out to be the genuine Mongolian  horses. They didn’t have those in America. On Europe for that matter.  What I was ashamed of turned out to be the movie’s asset.) James then  asked me, “How much did you spend on this movie?” "I told him php125,  000. That money was not enough to open the gates to Hollywood in the  morning. But then I was the director, walang bayad. I was the star,  walang bayad. I was the writer, walang bayad. I was the janitor, the  messenger."

“I had been told that I was a genius. I told him that there was a  difference. Orson Welles is writer-director-star because he is a genius.  Manuel Conde does it for lack of money.

Original uploader's comment:
"This is the Venice IFF cut of the film, the only known remaining cut, with English Narration by critic, James Agee. Quality's not that good, but it's watchable."
