A Great Classic Film With a Cast of Screen GIANTS!
Viewed "Blood & Sand" when it first came out in 1941 in NYC and it was considered a great film, and even today, generation after generation enjoy seeing this film and the great classic actors. Many audiences at the time thought that the bull fighting scenes were cruel and disgusting. Tyrone Power(Juan Gallardo),"Eddie Duchin Story",'56 was a very handsome actor who put his heart and soul into this great acting role. It was a shame that Tyrone Power died at a very young age and it was quite sometime before anyone even told his own mother about his death, because she was very elderly and the news would have broken her heart. Linda Darnell(Carmen Espinosa)"Zero Hour",'57 was the perfect wife of Juan and gave a great supporting role. Linda Darnell was visiting her sister in Chicago and died in a fire accident. J. Carrol Naish, (Garabato)"House of Frankenstein",'44 was a faithful friend and supporter of Juan and John Carradine(Nacional),"Evils of the Night",'85 gave his advice to help Juan become a great bull fighter. Laird Cregar,(Natalio Curro), "Hangover Square",'45 was a newspaper critic and played a very two faced role towards Juan. Anthony Quinn( Manola de Palma),"Revenge",'90, was a super star in this picture and was becoming a great classic giant on the silver screen. Rita Hayworth,"Salome",'53 was the temptress of Juans very heart and soul and did her very best to almost ruin his marriage and his career in the bull fighting ring! It is a shame that Rita Hayworth had a short life, suffering from Alzheimer's in her later years in life. This is a film I can see over and over again, very great films were produced in 1941 and this one will live on forever!
