Produced and directed by Sam Wood

Sam Wood’s epic adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel of the Spanish Civil War offered key supporting parts to an international cast, including fourth-billed Arturo de Córdova.  Playing quick-tempered republican guerilla Augustin, actor Arturo de Córdova sharpens the story’s political edge, and lends credibility and stature to its portrayal of the difficulty and danger of anti-fascist struggle.  UCLA Film & Television Archive’s restoration of this film restores several minutes to truncated versions that were circulated for years, and will be presented with entry music and an intermission.

Paramount Pictures, Inc. Screenwriter: Dudley Nichols, based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway. Cinematographer: Ray Rennahan. Editor: Sherman Todd, John F. Link. Cast: Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, Akim Tamiroff, Arturo de Córdova, Vladimir Sokoloff.
