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

Cary Grant had sworn never to make another historical film after the disastrous The Howards of Virginia (1940). He made an exception for this film, which also flopped. See more »

Goofs

When the cannon breaks loose and races down a hill it hits a ditch and bounces out coming to rest on the other side. In the next shot, the captain is inspecting the damage as the cannon rests squarely in the middle of the ditch that we've just seen it bounce out of. See more »

Grant, Sinatra and Loren with a big gun

The movie is set in the Napoleonic era.The British officer Anthony (Cary Grant) leads a group of Spanish guerrillas across Spain to help in the capture of Ávila and with them they're hauling a big cannon.Anthony starts having feelings for the leader Miguel's (Frank Sinatra) girl Juana (Sophia Loren).Stanley Kramer directed The Pride and the Passion in 1957.It's not the best example of historical movies but works OK.Cary Grant's charisma alone could carry the movie.Then there's Frank Sinatra opposite him.There may be a little problem with Sinatra playing a Spaniard and he did a better job in many other movies but was there really anything Frank couldn't pull off.Sophia Loren looks very appealing as Juana so no wonder men fall for her.There's some chemistry there at the kissing scenes between Grant and her.Theodore Bikel plays General Jouvet.This movie looks quite handsome with the scenery and all.This is a movie that's good to see if you don't have anything better to do.
