5.0 out of 5 stars Death In The Afternoon December 23, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
"Blood and Sand" based on the novel by Ibanez and presented by 20th Century-Fox is a masterpiece of old style Hollywood filmmaking. Director Rouben Mamoulian pulls out all the stops to present this Technicolor flushed romantic story of Juan Gallardo who is portrayed by the impossibly beautiful Tyrone Power. Juan grows from a poor boy dreaming of glory in the bullrings of Spain to the epitome of arrogance and ignorant of the cost to his soul of his fame.
The three principals of the story are, Tyrone Power, Linda Darnell as his childhood sweetheart Carmen, and Rita Hayworth as the seductive and hollow Dona Sol.
Tyrone Power presents us with a marvelous, energetic portrait of a young, brash and over confident Juan. His first close-up bursts the edges of the screen and burns in the colors of Goya. Tyrone Power was made for the movies and cinematographers Ernest Palmer and Ray Rennahan film him with as much care as they do the two female leads. Thus this overpoweringly beautiful close-up sucks the viewer into the world of Juan and one is swept away by his charm and bravado. Mr. Powers's performance is almost overshadowed at first by his physical presence but as the story progresses his talent as a film actor takes over and sustains the viewer to the end.
Linda Darnell, a great beauty of the movies and by her own admission, not much of an actress, turns in a very good performance as Juan's discarded wife Carmen. I do not agree with Miss Darnell's opinion of her talents. One only has to look at "Letter to Three Wives" to see what an accomplished screen actress she was. And here too she takes the thankless role of Carmen and makes one care about the poor girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars A BEAUTIFUL TECHNICOLOR BLU RAY FROM FOX July 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"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. "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 ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Lush Colour Remake Of Classic Bull Fighting Story June 2, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
While not being a fan of Bullfighting I find myself swept up in the excitment of this ultimate story about the trials and tribulations in the lives of Spain's famous Matadors. Undertaken as one of Twentieth Century Fox's biggest productions for 1941 and boasting the most breathtaking technicolour photography that you could imagine "Blood and Sand", is a visual feast for the eyes and provided Twentieth Century Fox's reigning male star Tyrone Power with another classic role which was itself a remake of an earlier version that had starred the legendary Rudolph Valentino. The film was significant in also providing a breakthrough role for Rita Hayworth who had spent the previous few years steadily climbing up the acting ladder from appearing in "B", efforts such as "Charlie Chan in Egypt", and "Blondie on a Budget". She makes a great impression here as the femme fatale who uses men and provides a dramatic illustration of what movie goers could look forward to in the coming years when she became the Queen of Columbia Studios. Her character in "Blood and Sand", makes an interesting contrast to female lead Linda Darnell's almost saintly wife and indeed you couldn't find a more beautiful production to showcase the beauty of both women beside the dashing Tyrone Power.

Based on the novel "Sangre y Arena", by Vincente Blasco Ibanez, "Blood and Sand", tells the story of tormented Matador Juan Gallardo (Tyrone power), from his childhood when he dreams of fighting the bulls in the arenas of Madrid just like his father had. As a boy he is the main worry of his religious mother Senora Augustias (Alla Nazimova), who sees him becoming just like his father who was killed by a bull in the ring.
