Despite the fact that this movie has a fine actor and fine actresses as well as an important American author, the film fails. Because it comes from a short story, it has brought in various other works of Hemmingway to fill in the time- which after awile becomes humorous instead of adding to the seriousness of the situation. I felt it dragged and did not sustain the horror at the end. In fact, it had a happy ending-certainly not Hemingway's.

Do Not Buy Quality Classics Version

"I bought this movie through an Amazon Marketplace supplier. I got the "Quality Classics" Version. It is unwatchable. The Cover has a close-up of Peck and Gardiner. It is a disaster and do not buy it. I am a huge fan of Ava Gardiner and Gregory Peck and I couldn't get through this."
