Movie Info

In an effort to maintain control of Mexico, Napoleon III (Claude Rains) of France installs the puppet leader Emperor Maximilian (Brian Aherne) to execute his commands and to wrest power from Benito Juárez (Paul Muni), Mexico's elected president. Maximilian questions his role, but his power-hungry wife, Empress Carlota (Bette Davis), pushes him to remain emperor. However, the will of the people and the fickleness of Napoleon's support put Maximilian in a precarious position.

Audience Reviews for Juarez

  • Apr 06, 2008
    Well appointed but lumbering, miscast drama. Bette is fine, all spit and fire but John Garfield, who was embarrassed by his forced casting, is completely out of place as Porfirio Diaz with his New York accent still firmly in place. Paul Muni, a very fine actor in modern dress roles, does what he always does when heavily made up he lets the makeup do the acting for him. A good try but stodgy.
