    This movie had so many lessons to teach that listing them would be too long to describe. A superb movie in all respects! It teaches the value of humility, loyalty to ones friends, familial devotion, how arrogance can lead to destruction he value of education, repentance and the power of prayer. The humorous part of the movie was when the protagnist's mother, wife, and the Blessed Virgin 'teamed up.' From that moment until the end I knew this guy's goose was cooked' though in a positive way. LOL! I recommend this movie 100%!

    The cinematography is exquisite in this film. The costuming is incredible and should have won an Academy Award. The gorgeous Rita Hayworth is stunningly beautiful, as always, and her character is sheer carnality. Tyrone Power is the perfect matador. He is completely uneducated unless it is about bulls. Once successful, he is swept away by the beauty and riches of another class strata and yet he knows in his heart that his childhood sweetheart and now wife, played by Linda Darnell, is the love of his life. This film is about blind ambition, friendships gone awry and friendships kept, sexual discovery and secrets. Special mention should be made of a very young Anthony Quinn who plays Power's best friend. In reality, they could have switched roles and this film would have been just as effective, as Quinn has the look and the feel of a matador and he is sexy. Love this film and always have!

    Este filme um dos melhores que Tryone Power fez. Tudo no filme exuberante. O original foi feito nos anos 20 por Rodolfo Valentino e este remake perfeito e no deixa de forma alguma quem v desapontado. Tryone Power no auge de sua popularidade e beleza,Rita Hayworth linda e a bela Linda Darnell estrelam esta super produo em Technicolor. Maravilhoso.

  • A movie not shown enough!

    This movie has to be one of my all time favorites let alone my favorite for Tyrone and Rita! Everything is just wonderful. Linda Darnell is beautiful, and the stroy is just as good. Although not shown very often and I dont know why. This movie is a classic and is not as recognized as it should be!

  • A Classic, Gorgeous Movie.

    You can not help getting caught up in this movie because everything about this movie is intense. The beautiful technicolor, the emotions, the people and the music. Tyrone & Hayworth were just outstanding & looked good together.
