Audience Reviews for Blood and Sand

  • Jan 23, 2009
    Realism takes a backseat to romance in this 1941 Technicolor extravaganza. A young Spanish boy rises from the depths of poverty to become "The World's Greatest Bullfighter". Tyrone Power is Juan Gallardo, the matador who discovers that fame is fleeting and not necessarily all that it is cracked up to be. His marriage to the young, virtuous Carmen (Linda Darnell) is threatened when his notoriety attracts the attention of the beautiful but unscrupulous Dona Sol (Rita Hayworth). This classic teaming of Hollywood heavyweights also features an up-and-coming young Anthony Quinn in a memorable supporting role. Every effort was made to try and make the violent sport of bullfighting more palatable for American audiences. Scenes of slaughter and blood are shot from a distance or, more often than not, not at all - opting instead for reaction shots of the crowd to convey the shock and brutality of the circumstance. <i>Blood and Sand</i> may not be an honest rendering of Spanish toreadors but it is enormously entertaining.
