The Loves of Carmen Reviews

  • Aug 23, 2020

    The Loves of Carmen is a decent film. It is about a beautiful but amoral gypsy girl entices a young dragoon to betray his honor. Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Charles Vidor did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the adventure and drama.

    Horrible script, juvenile acting by Hayworth and Ford. Since they were capable of more, this shows the power of the script. Why would such a monstrosity be green-lighted? Columbia seemed to lack the experience of bigger studios because they churned out so many clunkers that should have been stopped pre-production. This is a prime example of the drecks the industry could produce.

    After seeing Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford in :The Loves of Carmen" last night on TCM, I have a real appreciation of why Rita Hayworth was such a huge box office draw. She was exciting to watch and it's easy to see how so many men were mesmerized by her beauty and spunk! Glenn Ford was perfect or the role of Don Jose as well. I'd watch this movie again!

    This film is lavishly shot in Technicolor and features the glorious Rita Hayworth, but the screenplay and acting leave much to be desired.

    It was an absolutely brilliant movie, but the one thing I enjoyed the most were the costumes, they were gorgeous.

    - The movie reunites the always lovely Rita Hayworth with her "Gilda" director and co-star, but the movie never feels right as a vehicle for Hayworth and Glen Ford. They both give good performances, but Rita is over-the-top and Ford looks uncomfortable and is unconvincing as a Spanish soldier turned criminal...

    Glenn Ford and Rita Hayworth hit the right note again in this non-musical version of Carmen. He is good, but she is better and quite mean as well.
