Paris in the 1920s. The American journalist Jake and his friends spend the time at cafés. He has a special interest in his ex-fiancée Lady Ashley. They take a vacation in Pamplona to watch the bull-fights.Written by
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 »
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.
