今天帶兒子與MIKE一起看這部片子，雖然很久前看過，再看一次仍是感動萬分。內容是哥倫布（義大利語：Cristoforo Colombo，1451年8月或10月－1506年5月20日），探險的故事，內容包括：西班牙宗教法庭、薩拉曼卡大學（Universidad de Salamanca）、伊莎貝拉女王收復格拉納達、塞維亞港口出航、聖瑪麗號、Guanahani Is….。

●Main article: 1492: Conquest of Paradise (album)
Despite the picture's dismal box office intake in the United States, the film's score by renowned composer Vangelis became a successful album worldwide. Its main theme, Conquest of Paradise, was used by former Portuguese Prime-Minister António Guterres at his 1995 election and is used by the Portuguese Socialist Party as its anthem since then. The theme is also used by New Zealand Super 14 Rugby Franchise, the Crusaders as they run onto the field, often accompanied by actors dressed as knights and riding on horseback and rugby league team Wigan Warriors who play in Super League. The theme was also played before the start of every match in 2010 ICC World Twenty20 Cricket tournament as well as the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. In these events the theme was played right before the national anthems of the two competing nations, as the flags of the two nations were carried into the ground, along with the players of the two teams. The German boxer Henry Maske (former world champion (IBF) in the Light heavyweight category) used the main theme as his official entry theme during his professional career.
