Stiff and smug adaptation (1943) of the Hemingway Spanish civil war novel, starring Gary Cooper, a crew-cut Ingrid Bergman, and the hammiest cast of supporting peasants this side of The Good Earth: Akim Tamiroff, Joseph Calleia, Katina Paxinou, Vladimir Sokoloff, Fortunio Bonanova, and Arturo de Cordova. Sam Wood's direction is limited to forced perspective compositions and hollow, incantatory line readings, but the craggy landscape shines under Ray Rennahan's Technicolor cinematography.
