Paris in the 1920s. The American journalist Jake and his friends spend the time at cafés. He has a special interest in his ex-fiancée Lady Ashley. They take a vacation in Pamplona to watch the bull-fights. Written by
A difficult film to describe or love. The characters are pure soap opera and unlikable. The relationship between the Tyrone Power and Ava Gardner is unique which I won't spoil here. Have not read the book which may explain why the characters do what they do. They are a bunch of dead beats and no fun to be around. The best parts of the movie are the magnificent locations, cinematography and musical score, especially in the Paris segment. Tyrone Power was much too old for his role and did not seem to be in character most of the time. Ava Gardner was surprisingly good, as was Errol Flynn. Eddie Alberts characterzation was the same kind of side-kick he played so often, most notably in ROMAN HOLIDAY. Nice the have the movie on wide-screen DVD and worth a look. Look for an uncomfortable Robert Evans as a Spaniard yet!!
