During the scene when Doña Sol des Muire sings to Juan Gallardo on his first visit to her home, she accompanies herself on the guitar, but while she strums the fingers of her other hand never move to change chords as she plays. See more »

One of Tyrone Powers best efforts as an actor. Linda Darnell is, as usual absoulutly beautiful. Rita, just doesn't make it in the looks department. One wonders why Juan ever left his gorgeous wife (Linda) for this little vixan, Rita. Anthony Quinn is superb as the heavy.
The bull fighting scenes are the best ever filmed. I,personally, do not care for this sport (?). The scene where Power looks eye to eye with the bull, turns his back to the bull and slowly walks away while draging his cape along the sand is a mind blower. This is one of 20th Century Fox's finest moments in motion pictures. How the Academy picked "Sgt. York" over this as best picture of 1941 is a real mystery to me.
