Superb film and magnificent quality - original trailer is a bonus - hope 'The Ghost & Mrs .Muir' is on the blu-ray release list.

Absolute classic that never loses its relevance. the subject and the events will never become dated. Brando at his best, as well as the rest of the cast. The ending is truly brilliant

HASH(0x9ba99a68) out of 5 stars Brilliant magnificent film 12 May 2013
By Jim Tarleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This flawless Blu-Ray edition of "Viva Zapata!" has long been awaited. Brando, Kazan, Steinbeck make a magnificent trio of movie making. This is Brando and Kazan pre-"On The Waterfront" and the film is a classic masterpiece. Brando and Quinn, in his Oscar winning performance, are superb. The black and white photography is stunning. Alex North's score is rousing. One of the great films of the 1950's finally comes to Blu-Ray. An absolute must!

HASH(0x9be55b64) out of 5 stars An Accurate Story of Mexican Revolution. 13 May 2014
By Maximiliano F Yofre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Actually this was the film that triggered my interest on the Mexican Revolution.
I’ve seen it many times and always found new details to take into account. As I read more and more on the subject my appreciation of this movie increases.
It presents the viewer with a big fresco of the Revolution that convulsed that country for more than ten years.
I admire the strange capacity of the film to show condensed in each scene, many key issues of why and how the Revolution exploded and continue growing along the years, with an immitigable fire.

Director Elia Kazan has been criticized for his appearance on the Un-American Activities Committee that lead many people related to cinematography to be ostracized.
This been said, regardless of his political stand, he had directed many great Oscar winner films as: “Gentleman’s Agreement” (1947), “Streetcar Named Desire” (1951); “East of Eden” (1955); “Splendor on the Grass” (1961) and the present “Viva Zapata!” (1952).
He had directed two “Movie Icons” as Marlon Brando (more than once) and James Dean obtaining the best from them. All his films explored the inner depth of human soul with unflinching stare.

Since the first shot, showing a very accurate characterization of President Porfirio Diaz (Fay Roope) and giving an inkling of the type of ruler he was, an enormous gallery of Mexican historical figure are made known.
Francisco Madero’s (Harold Gordon) personality and idealistic naïveté is depicted with very few strokes.
Huerta’s (Frank Silvera) wickedness and treachery is shown too.

Above all of them Emiliano Zapata’s figure impersonated by an inspired Marlon Brando stands with an epic height. His ideals, stubbornness, charisma and internal sorrows leading him to the final sacrifice, are shown convincingly.

A special mention must be done of Anthony Quinn’s superb performance, which entitled him to win the Oscar. He not only has the physique du role, but an internal conviction to give flesh to Eufemio, Zapata’s brother, a semi cultured and brave centaur, product of his times and environment.

Josefa (Jean Peters) the fiancée and later wife of Emiliano shows all the traits of a high middle class woman romantically requested by a rural hero. The scene played with Brando in the church’s atrium is wonderful.
The only character that gives a discordant note is the fictional Fernando, representing an addict to revolution for revolution in itself.

Joseph MacDonald’s black and white photography is very beautiful. Steinbeck’s screenplay has a solid internal coherence that shows all along the film.

A Classic Movie not diminished by the more than fifty years passed.

HASH(0x9bcf9810) out of 5 stars terrfic movie 29 Jun. 2013
By James Harter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a terrific film, made when Brando really wanted to be an actor and was working at it, rather than some of his later outings where he pretty much "phoned it in." John Steinbeck wrote the screenplay (I think his only one?), Anthony Quinn won his first Best Suporting actor Oscar, and Joseph Wiseman, as usual, is excellent.

HASH(0x9bcf81d4) out of 5 stars A True Mexican hero and Brando at his best! 10 Jun. 2014
By J. Ohnstad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A man of the people, a man of principal, a man of honor and a man of conviction this is Zapata! Brando gives one of the best performance's of his career. The compelling story of a penny less farmer that becomes one of mexico's greatest and beloved generals. He fights for the people and their right to land paid for in blood. Also staring Anthony Quinn who became the first Mexican-American to win an academy award for best supporting actor for his performance. This movie in Black & white on blu-ray if fantastic!
Five stars for actors, five stars for story and five stars for John Steinbeck's writing of Mexico's greatest general Emiliano Zapata!

HASH(0x9cc14378) out of 5 stars viva zapata 18 Feb. 2014
By philip h mccarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
i had caught parts of this on turner classic movies but had never seen the entire film. Nobody beats Brando when he puts his gifts to work. He makes the movie worth watching and to see a young Brando and Anthony Quinn is worth the price of admission. also I am pretty sure a young Henry Silva shows up. A keeper.
