Storyline

The story in this movie deals with the perseverance of Spaniards to take back their country from the French who have conquered Spain under Napoleon as he marched over Europe. A huge cannon, perhaps the largest in the world at that time, is discarded by the army as they retreat from the French invaders. A "ragtag" group of Spanish loyalists find "The Gun" and begin to restore it so they may tow it across Spain to the French stronghold in Avila and use it to open the giant walls for an invasion. Luckily Britain has sent someone to retrieve the cannon for England so they can have it to fight the French also AND to make sure that the French don't get the gun! A shoemaker and his voluptuous girl friend are the leaders of the peasants trying to get the gun to Avila. The Brit can't get help to get the giant gun back to his ship without the peasants and the shoemaker won't help him unless they all go blast Avila open first. The Brit has the knowledge needed to fire the weapon and the ... Written by Eduardo Randallo

Goofs

When the cannon hits the ditch at the end of the roll and breaks, the pivot part of the barrel that breaks off is clearly wooden. A large chunk of it breaks off of the cannon barrel and looks like a tree trunk does when it is split, with large wood fibers clearly visible. This shows that the cannon is made of wood and not metal. See more »

An engaging story of human pathos
14 December 2005 | by kgcbjSee all my reviews

Somewhat dated and slightly corny, however, the three principal stars pull off good entertainment. The interplay between Sinatra and Grant is well done and Loren adds a bit of fuel to the fire. I feel that any one watching this movie will be rooting for the trio to reach their goal in spite of the obstacles placed in front of them including their own egos. The fact that Sophia Loren is in this movie speaks for itself. There are no plot twists and misdirected clues what you see is what you get. The inspiration from dogged determination is what I believe this movie is about. If you like military action the canon is also the bigger than life star that steals some scenes. I highly recommend seeing this movie with out commercial interption because each seen flows into the next and watching from start to finish is more satisfying for this movie.
