The Knight of the Dragon (Spanish: El caballero del dragón), a.k.a. Star Knight, is a 1985 Spanish adventure film directed by Fernando Colomo and starring Klaus Kinski. In this film, a knight sets out to rescue a princess from a dragon, but the dragon turns out to really be an alien spacecraft.
After the film's theatrical run in its native Spain, CineTel Films picked up the film for a U.S. theatrical release in the summer of 1986. However, the film was not released on videocassette in the U.S. until 1992, when it was released by Vidmark Entertainment. After a while, the film fell into the public domain and received numerous VHS and DVD releases.
