Karen Harrison is a spoiled, rich, American predator who falls head-over-heels for the brooding, tormented, about-to-retire matador, Luis Santos who has inexplicably run away prior to a corrida that was to occasion the "alternativa" of a young, up-and-coming bullfighter. The mystery is solved 94 minutes later, after Maureen has conquered Tony and Tony has saved Marueen's life by caping a toro bravo with his plaid horse blanket. Written by

According to Maureen O'Hara in her memoirs Tis Herself, during the shooting of this movie, many people booed in a scene where a bull was not actually killed. They expected a bull to be sacrificed for every take. Maureen O'Hara said that she was very upset because of this. See more »
Interesting point with The Magnificent Matador is that you can see a segment of Raoul Kraushaar's score provides the melody for Hans Zimmer's opening theme in Gladiator. Good technicians have no qualms borrowing from others. Here Hans Zimmer has cut and pasted a full seven note section.
Don't mean to harp here but more text is required. Other sound grabs in Gladiator's opening battle include pieces of ZULU theme. Some reviewers have also claimed the Gauls in the opening battle even appear to be chanting Zulu war cries but I think this is a stretch. What else can the casual observer learn from The Magnificent Matador? Pink supposedly fascinates bulls. Gold embroidery really fascinates matadors.
