In the first 5 minutes of the movie it is supposed to be 1939 and the Loyalist (Republican) soldiers are crossing into exile on the French border. As they cross over they are turning in their guns and the first one to turn in his gun turns in a Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun. The PPSh-41 was not developed until 1941. See more »

This is almost a masterpiece, Gregory Peck! Anthony Quinn!!!!!?? This is one of the better if not best movies i've ever come across, and yet it received barely any recognition at all, I'm stumped...its a disgrace, I LOVE this film. It might be that the beginning turns some people off, but thats why you have to really get into it at first and let it take you into its world, them you can take in the full experience and finally see what I mean. No matter what happens with this movie, the two main actors are deceased and it didn't great any awards, I still have the luck of seeing it. Please someone help me get this off the ground and into peoples TV's.
