Editorial Reviews

The life and times of the legendary Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata are brought to the screen in Darryl F. Zanuck's powerful production of John Steinbeck's screenplay. Marlon Brando, fresh from his success in A Streetcar Named Desire, gives a stunning portrayal of the outlaw turned revolutionary leader. The film also boasts Anthony Quinn's 1952 Best Supporting Actor OSCARr-Winning performance as Zapata's brother. Viva Zapata! is one of the classic political movies and another fi ne example of Brando's genius as a film actor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant magnificent film May 11, 2013
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brooding, Contemplative and Powerful May 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Director Elia Kazan basically uses the historical Zapata figure to show how power corrupts and distorts the higher aspirations of an individual to overcome injustice in the world. Brando is brooding and contemplative, yet powerful as Zapata, the thinking man swayed from his vision. This film is filled with many great performances, especially from Anthony Quinn and Joseph Wiseman. John Steinbeck's screenplay, though a fictionalized account of Zapata, is moving and effectively thought provoking. Joe MacDonald's black & white cinematography is stunning and brilliantly effective capturing the mood of this historical period. Alex North's crusty and lyrical score complements MacDonald's cinematography brilliantly. As for this particular Blu-ray, I thought it looked very good and images contained details that were clean and crisp.

4.0 out of 5 stars terrfic movie June 29, 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars viva zapata February 18, 2014
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good acquisition for funs of classical movies August 5, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie has two main advantages that allows it to remain enjoyable. First it has two outstanding actors (Marlon Brando & Anthony Quinn) playing major roles in the story, and second, it is conducted by Elia Kazan, one of the best movie directors of the period where the film was prroduced. Maybe for current standards the plot is a little too simplistic but in spite of that it continues to be a good acquisition for a collector of classical movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great "Ole School" Black & White October 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I choose this movie, because I saw it as a youngster with my dad. We liked it and could never locate it again. So, for me it had sentimental value to have Viva Zapata by Marlon Brando.
