Peter Walsh Film Culture Unfortunately, the film retains the novelist’s text without capturing the distinctive mood of the original. An aura of remoteness obscures the vital motivations (wildly seeking expression in cynical bravado) of the characters. Mar 30, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Richard L An absolutely horrid attempt at adapting a masterfully written book. You can kind of see what the screenwriters were going for, forcing a bit more structure into the story, but even at over 2 hours it still mostly just feels like an agglomeration of random scenes without any emotional glue to keep them together. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/01/23 Full Review dave j Adapted from the book written by Ernest Hemingway that is set during the 1920's starring Tyrone Power as Jake Barnes a writer for the newspaper working in Paris which was at the time used to be affordable as opposed to living in the United States. While his friend,Robert Cohn (Mel Ferror) attempts to convince him to move out of Paris with him. Things begin to change when an old flame, Lady Brett Ashley (Ava Gardner) comes to Paris for a visit slightly disrupting his plans with a friend Bill Gorton (Eddie Albert) for fishing and watching bull fighting in Spain, revealing the star as impotent. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An absolutely horrid attempt at adapting a masterfully written book.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review richard f Hemingway an unhappy genius! Love him or don't what a telent. Tyrone Powers one of a few forgotten great American actors. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A rivating and beautifully filmed rendition of the Hemingway classic. The bullfight scence is a classic. The cast, however, should have featured much younger actors. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Bad adaptation of the book, but a great movie to see old Zorro (Tyrone Power) and old Robin Hood (Errol Flynn) sitting in the sun in Spain, enjoying life. And you see legendary Paramount producer Robert Evans as the young matador, the rest of the cast thought he sucked, but director Henry King wrote them a note saying 'the kid stays in the picture'. This is also the title of Evans' autobiography and his 2002 documentary on his own carreer. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
