"Blood and Sand"(1941) is the first of three Technicolor Blu-rays that will be released by Fox this year starring Tyrone Power with the other two being "Jesse James"(1939) and "The Black Swan"(1942). Those who have any doubts about how these old Technicolor films might look on Blu-ray after seventy years can put all those doubts away. "Blood and Sand" looks absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray and if you're a fan of Technicolor films from this era then you'll be pleased. All the credit should go to the film restorers at Fox for bringing this film back to life in a dazzling Blu-ray presentation(Bitrate: 35.08). "Blood and Sand" won a richly deserved Oscar for Best Cinematography(Ernest Palmer & Ray Rennahan) but credit must be given also to it's director, Rouben Mamoulian who according to the liner notes "based many of the film's set designs and color schemes on the works of master Spanish painters such as El Greco, Velasquez and Goya." Many of the scenes in the film do look like paintings come to life and that is brought out to amazing effect in this Blu-ray presentation. For a film that's over seventy years old, it looks brand new considering that some Technicolor films released recently on Blu-ray look almost artificial. Not so with "Blood and Sand". Colors are vibrant, especially the blues and reds. Look no further than the toreador costumes worn by the bull fighters. If I had to pick one color that stands out among all the others in would be "Gold". You can see the smallest details in these costumes and will have a greater appreciation to all the hard work the costume designers did in making each one authentic. The story is a familiar one, that of a poor boy who rises to the top of the bull fighting profession only to be brought down by his ego and the wrong woman(the beautiful Rita Hayworth).Read more ›

would never have imagined a movie almost 70 years old could look this beautiful in the blu ray edition..story is a bit tired,but seeing tyrone power an rita Hayworth look this great is worth the cost of the blu ray alone....nobody in movies today comes close to them.great technical work by 20th century fox

Apparently the original Technicolor negative is long gone, but whatever means Fox had in creating this Blu-ray image, it works well enough for me. The image is somewhat sharper than the previous DVD and the color , though not as robust as a Technicolor film better preserved (such as Gone With The Wind or The Wizard of Oz), the presentation succeeds in showcasing the visuals which emulate famous painters such as Goya, etc.

The director's The Mark of Zorro, also starring Tyrone Power, and photographed in stunning black and white, is a more tightly edited and entertaining film, but Blood and Sand is well worth watching nevertheless.

20th Century Fox under Darryl F. Zanuck produced many great films that may be unknown to younger audiences. Blu-ray gives todays viewers the chance to see these films close to the way they looked in theaters at the time of their initial release. This is a melodramatic story of the rise and fall of an ambitious bullfighter beautifully rendered in softer than normal Technicolor hues. Don't miss the chance to see this early Rita Haworth classic.

Sorry for the cheezy title. I must admit I have always enjoyed this movie, with the scenery and music... it gives a good Hollywood glimpse of the "torrero" life of Juan Gallardo.Nice music and okay drama. Having this in Blu-Ray vs. VHS makes it all the more better.

Amazon did an excellent job with respect to the timeliness of the delivery and the condition of the Blue-ray version of this classic forties movie, starring probably the most beautiful Hollywood actress that ever graced the silver screen, Margarita Carmen Casino.

The Blu Ray transfer is great. So good that is bad: you can see clearly that Tyrone Power is not the man doing the bullfighting! LOL. On the other hand, wow, the several Rita Hayworth's close up shows only one thing: an amazing beauty.
