Trivia

As detailed in his autobiography, "The Kid Stays in the Picture", both cast and crew, Ernest Hemingway, Tyrone Power, and Ava Gardner included, attempted to have Robert Evans fired during production. Producer Darryl F. Zanuck refused, saying, "The kid stays in the picture," thus leading to both Evans' long career as a producer and the title of his book. See more »

Goofs

This movie takes great care to copy the women's fashions of the 1920s. The outfits of the men, on the other hand, look very 1950s; even the Spanish military uniforms at the Pamplona sequence are not quite right for the 1920s. See more »

Quotes

Mike Campbell: Toro! Toro, old boy!
Bill Gorton: What's that?
Mike Campbell: It's a personal check of mine, old boy. It's bounced three times. I was wondering if it could possibly have an effect on that animal.
Bill Gorton: Why don't you try it on him?
Mike Campbell: I shall.

Riveting spectacle
28 June 1999 | by BedeSee all my reviews

This is a riveting film. The story is a classic, and the acting generally good, with Errol Flynn brilliant. It is also a memorable spectacle, with great use of colour. Tyrone Power's Jake is too old, too stodgy, too obtuse--but this is a minor irritation. On the whole, two hours of great entertainment.
