Synopsis

This "expansion" of Ernest Hemingway's vivid novel about American expatriates trying to find themselves in lives of disillusion in Europe just after World War I proved to be as flawed as the 1957 movie version that starred Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner and Errol Flynn, among other notables. Not helping matters was producer/writer Robert L.
