Reviews

Adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's classic 'Lost Generation' novel, starring Tyrone Power as war veteran and writer Jake Barnes. Immersing himself in the bohemian circles of 1920s Paris, Jake continues to be obsessed by his ex-fiancée Brett Ashley (Ava Gardner). Rendered impotent by his war wound, Jake is condemned to watch her carousing with her new lover Mike (Errol Flynn), and as the doomed bohemians make their way to the Pamplona bullfighting festival, their lives begin to implode in a welter of alcoholism and recrimination.

This thoughtful, slow-moving account of expatriates in Parisian 1920's, at 129 minutes, perhaps does require some stamina, but Ernest Hemingway's troubled characters are played by some top draw names of the time including, Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner, Mel Ferrer and Errol Flynn, in a film-stealing performance. This was to be the last of Flynn's notable performances; one that mirrored the star in reality. Overall, this 1957 classic does boast beautiful colour, stunning scenery and an appropriately prominent musical score by Hugo Friedhofer. A worthwhile presentaton.

Format: DVD
This film was poorly received on its initial release due to its slow pace, and the fact that all the actors were older than the characters they were playing from the book. Although both observations are undeniably true, they are relatively unimportant given the overall effect of the picture. Tyrone Power, Errol Flynn, Eddie Albert and even the ravishingly beautiful Ava Gardner were definitely past their prime. In the case of Flynn and Gardner, life in the fast lane was taking a toll. But in a way this made them ideally qualified for their roles, thus mirroring their own self destructive tendencies in portraying the 'Lost Generation', being the hedonistic expatriate American survivors of World War One in Paris and Spain. Flynn simply gets to ape his own image as a womanising drunk, whilst Gardner plays the promiscuous divorcee Lady Brett Ashley. Gardner, who was known to have a liking for bullfighters, even gets to have a dalliance with one in this film.

The film is adapted from Ernest Hemingway's famous novel of the same name, and in so far as Hollywood goes it is a fairly faithful adaption. The story centres around the relationship between Power and Gardner which is a doomed one for reasons that soon become apparent. We follow a tormented Power as he watches Gardner's calamitous affairs with increasing contempt. Gardner and her followers travel to Pamplona in Spain to watch the famous bull run, and whilst enjoying the fiesta passions begin to run very high indeed. For those with an aversion to bullfighting, be warned there are a few scenes showing this, although it is very mild. The film is beautifully shot on location in Spain and France, with scenes taken from what looked to be the bull run itself in Pamplona.

Yes, the transfer is very good. Yes, Errol Flynn steals the show. Yes, the locations are very good. True to the book? Not exactly. My advice :- Read the book before watching this film.

In general, I don't care much for old films, but I make an exception for this one. Partly, I imagine, it is because I first saw it in the original 1957 cinemascope format at a good quality cinema. Of course it isn't the same as a DVD on a domestic television set, but nevertheless I still found it a pleasure to watch. It follows reasonably closely Hemingway's novel on which it is based, so, if you like Hemingway, you will probably enjoy this film. (NB)The bull fight scenes are sanitized, but if you are totally opposed, this isn't for you.

A great film showing some of Hollywood's stars towards the end of their careers. Both Powers and Flynn former swashbucklers proved they had the ability to put in serious performances once there 'action' days were coming to an end.
