Storyline

The story in this movie deals with the perseverance of Spaniards to take back their country from the French who have conquered Spain under Napoleon as he marched over Europe. A huge cannon, perhaps the largest in the world at that time, is discarded by the army as they retreat from the French invaders. A "ragtag" group of Spanish loyalists find "The Gun" and begin to restore it so they may tow it across Spain to the French stronghold in Avila and use it to open the giant walls for an invasion. Luckily Britain has sent someone to retrieve the cannon for England so they can have it to fight the French also AND to make sure that the French don't get the gun! A shoemaker and his voluptuous girl friend are the leaders of the peasants trying to get the gun to Avila. The Brit can't get help to get the giant gun back to his ship without the peasants and the shoemaker won't help him unless they all go blast Avila open first. The Brit has the knowledge needed to fire the weapon and the ... Written by Eduardo Randallo

Trivia

By all accounts, Frank Sinatra was at his most obstreperous throughout the making of this film. Among other things, he refused to use the car supplied him by the studio, insisting upon having his Ford Thunderbird flown all the way to Spain at the studio's expense. In addition, he almost caused an international incident when he hung a banner from his hotel room window reading "Franco is a Fink", referring to Spain's dictator, Gen. Francisco Franco. In hindsight, Sinatra referred to the whole experience as "underwhelming". See more »

Goofs

After the wall has been breached the commander of the French Garrison orders the Captain to "Mass your rifles in the square". The French army did not use rifles in the Peninsular war as Napoleon had discarded them as being too slow to reload. See more »

Come on you Gunners
27 April 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I have not seen this film for about 30 years until it was shown over Easter on Channel 4.I shouldn't have rode my luck.I should have gone out and watch the grass grow.This was the most amateurish,boring inept film that was put out in the 1950s.There is one scene when Cary Grant is involved in a knife fight by a windmill when the shadow of the camera and the camera crew is in view for most of the fight.The "acting" varies from bad to the unbelievable.Frank Sinatra obviously thought of himself as a macho leading man,a pint size Burt Lancaster maybe.His accent is straight out of The cisco Kid.Cary Grant seems to be carved out of wood.Sophia loren plays Sophia Loren. Just don't bother with this.
