Waiter! Oh, waiter! Waiter? Pssst! Tsk, tsk, tsk! Garcon! Boy!
Nobody home. You know something? The service around this town is getting worse and worse every night.
Perhaps it's me.

A story about life told as close to perfection as possible!
Tyrone Power was the quintessential choice for the Jake Barnes role. Ava Gardner was superb as the modern day Aphrodite. Errol Flynn and Eddie Albert were charming and added just the right amount of comic relief along with being terrific as the supporting cast. Mel Ferrer added to the opposite end of the spectrum. His dramatic scenes gave us the reality check needed to keep the movie from going to far in one direction. The background scenes were absolutely beatiful! Paris, Spain, the bull fights! Finally the movie shows just how post-war people can lose direction in their lives while looking for love in all the wrong places. This was story telling at it's best!
