It continues to be one of my favourites

It is rare to see such unanimity in comments, and I can only add my 10/10 to the list. I first saw it in 1961 at the Larkin Theater in San Francisco. I was fortunate to catch it on British TV many years ago and taped it - poor quality but better than nothing. Not only is it a wonderful film but it has been influential in shaping the political and social outlook of several generations, as is evident from the comments above. The Spanish Civil War ended seventy years ago but the passions it stimulated still persist. As in any war, it is easy to find heroes and villains (which is which depends on your political point of view) but, also as in any war, one can also see victims. They are poignantly evident in this great film.
