Producer Walter Wanger was not deterred by pre-release threats of problems and boycotts from pro-fascist foreign governments. He responded, "Not only do we meekly take intimidation from abroad, but we jump obediently when almost anybody in this country says, 'Frog!' It's ridiculous, and I, for one, don't intend to continue. I'm going to release this Spanish picture as is, and if it's banned in Europe, I'll have to take my loss.". See more »
[last lines, after being told to find peace]
Marco: Peace? Where can you find it? Our country's been turned into a battlefield! There's no safety for old people and children. Women can't keep their families safe in their houses; they can't be safe in their own fields! Churches, schools, hospitals are targets! It's not war; war is between soldiers! It's murder! Murder of innocent people! There's no sense to it. The world can stop it! Where's the conscience of the world?

You'd really have to stretch to find a firm connection between this movie and the Spanish Civil War. If you were not a college student such as myself, studying this film, I doubt that you would even consider doing so. Remembering Franco is not a favorite pasttime of the people of this nation. It is a reminder of the fact that there was a leader who was willing to let his whole nation be decimated for personal gain. Yuckie! In the meantime, if you want cheesy, rigid filmmaking starring a paisley-cheeked Henry Fonda, look no further. Contains a love scene in a collapsed building, as well as a chicano actor pretending to be a spanish man pretending to play a flute. Dig the oxymoronic ending!
WARNING!!! Cheesiness may not lead to as many laughs as cheesiness of Tremors!
