Trivia

Juliette Gréco was noticed by Mel Ferrer and wife Audrey Hepburn singing in a Parisian nightclub, and they introduced her to Darryl F. Zanuck, who was so taken with her that he cast her in the film and had her part enlarged. She went on to star in two additional Zanuck productions. Mel Ferrer had actually appeared with Juliette Greco in Elena et les Hommes in 1956, the previous year. See more »

Goofs

This movie takes great care to copy the women's fashions of the '20s. The outfits of the men, on the other hand, look very '50s; even the Spanish military uniforms at the Pamplona sequence are not quite right for the '20s. See more »

Quotes

Lady Brett Ashley: You know English very well, don't you?
Pedro Romero: Si, pretty well sometime, but I must not let anybody know. It would be very bad for a torero who speaks English.

A Doomed Leap for Greatness
5 January 1999 | by (bettendorf iowa) – See all my reviews

This was made in 1957, when Ty Power was 43, and getting a bit dull and paunchy. The whole cast was a mite ripe for the film. If the same cast had made it ten years earlier, it would have been a real treat.

Problem is, in 1947, none of that cast had put themselves through enough agony to convey the world-weariness of Hemingway's 20-something crew. Power was still a one dimensional pretty boy, although morphing into a real actor with films like Razor's Edge and Nightmare Alley; Ava Gardner was a slick chick on the MGM lot who had been married to Mickey Rooney, but otherwise didn't have a lot of movie experience. Errol Flynn was deteriorating noticeably, but hadn't acquired the self-knowledge he demonstrated in The Sun Also Rises.

If the Cast of '57 could have conveyed their panache in '47, it might have worked really well. As it is, only Flynn really rises to the occasion. Ironically, he steals the film in a distinctly supporting role. He is the only one who captures the tragedy of a misspent life - the others just seem cranky and self indulgent.
