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 OSCAR(R)-Winning performance as Zapata's brother. Viva Zapata! is one of the classic political movies and another fine example of Brando's genius as a film actor.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Another, oldie and goodie. Steinbeck's line, delivered by Marlon Brando, which says; "We don't need a strong leader, we need a strong People!" is apropos today.
Thoroughly enjoyed, even though the ending was predictable, but had a hint of Hope.

Great movie with a very young Marlon Brando playing the lead character. Movie is about the Mexican Revolution around the early 1900's. Well cast and entertaining story that has at least some basis in fact.
