Trivia

Fans of Tyrone Power were shocked by his tired and aged appearance in the movie, since he was only 42 at the time of filming. Years of chain smoking cigarettes and drinking heavily had taken a toll on his looks. In addition he was reportedly taking pills so he could survive with only three hours sleep every night.

Mike Campbell: I should have thought you'd have loved being a steer, Robert.
Robert Cohn: What do you mean, Mike?
Mike Campbell: Well, they lead a sort of quiet life. They never say anything important, and they're always hanging around. I should have thought you'd have enjoyed that. Aren't you going to say anything?
Lady Brett Ashley: Oh, shut up, Mike!

great cast, worth seeing in spite of its faults.
23 August 2007 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

What can one say about a movie which has so many stars in its cast, was directed by Henry King, has excellent scenes of bullfighting, and great scenery? With all its faults, it is quite worth seeing. I was impressed with the performances of Errol Flynn, which was basically playing himself and Robert Evans. Even though Evans barely speaks, he is able to show the fear the bullfighter feels and his portrayal of Pedro Romero is faultless. Mel Ferrer is a convincing Cohn, a man who tries too hard, and suffers too much. Tyrone Power is at his best as Barnes, a writer that became impotent due to war wounds, and is a resigned observer of the affairs of Lady Brett(Ava Gardner), his great love. Brett is a hedonistic woman who tries to compensate her impossible love for Barnes. Is there a solution for them, the film asks and gives a slight hint of an an answer by mentioning religion. It is a film you enjoy while it lasts, but leaves you with an empty feeling.
