    I was channel surfing one morning and I came across this interesting movie in color with Ava Gardner and Tony Franciosa (and another actor I did not recognize). This was a Spanish War movie and these three main characters were involved in a love triangle. This film held my interest mainly because it was not dubbed in English and the acting was believable. Good movie..........

  • Whyt that movie title?

    I'm not a fan of either Franciosa or Ava, but I recently saw a film about Goya with Natalie Portman running afoul of the Inquisition -- titles something like Goya's Sketchbook or something. But I was dazzled by this production as someone here said -- the costumes, the music, the dancing, the passion. When it was over I thought to myself 'that is an excellent bodice ripper novel for housewives who aspired to be a duchesses who could sway thrones and play with many lovers. Still, it has to rate more that 3.5 starts. For 1959 this is a mature "art" film. Well worth our time.

    Este filme deslumbrante e excelente. Filmado em luxuosas locaes em Roma e seus arredores o filme tem um figurino luxuoso e uma bela Ava Gardner totalmente radiante ao lado do ator Anthony Franciosa. Um clssico maravilhoso que retrata a poca da revoluo espanhola com todo glamour da dcada de 50. Eu fiquei muito triste em saber que o filme no se encontra no acervo de filme do TCM. Este filme j est disponvel em DVD e por favor TCM no deixem de procurar pelo filme que lindo. O telespectador merece ver este filme no TCM.

  • JUST AWFUL!!!

    I didn't read the article for this film before watching it, didn't want to be swayed by the comments there. The only review posted here before the film aired tonight was the one in a language I can't read. I started watching, ready to be dazzled by Ava Gardner. Wow! I wasn't expecting such an awful film. Poor acting overall & the final scene is so hokey that it comes off almost as a parody of 50's period costume dramas. Tony Fransciosa's acting, method acting supposedly, is some of the worst I've ever seen on TCM. Was he seriously acting or making fun of his character? Location shots are beautiful. Nice Technicolor & costumes. Most of the dialog is absurd. It's obvious that much of the dialog is dubbed & it's distracting. The dance scenes were OK but the bulk of this film is so bad they can't save it at all for me.

  • The Naked Maja -- Spanish Passion

    • Randy
    • 11/18/10

    I cannot express how much I love "The Naked Maja". The music, the dancing, the passion. The fierce acting keeps a dangerous tension throughout the picture. That short but seductive Spanish dance duet that Marie & Paco do in the middle of the film leaves me breathless. It may not be high on technique but it delivers the wordless message of dance as dance should. It is seduction personified.It might be Hollywood but I find it a tremendous love story, unpretentious and soulful.

  • Clássico da melhor qualidade

    Este filme pouco conhecido de Ava Gardner. La Maja Nua um clssico e sugiro que o TCM tenha o filme em seu acervo, pois o filme lindo. Um filme pico de amor e traio tendo locaes em Roma e tendo no elenco o ator Anthony Franciosa. Um filme que acho que j est disponvel em Dvd e que os fs de Ava no podem deixar de ver. TCM se puder consiga o filme para ser exibido j que o filme uma preciosidade em que Ava exibe sua beleza e est no auge de sua popularidade.
