"Francesco Rosi's landmark film, in Italian with English subtitles, was shot documentary-style in brilliant color by Gianni Di Venanzo."
World class toreador Mateo Miguelin plays an impoverished Spanish lad who becomes a bullfighter in this routine drama. He quickly rises to the top and is soon appearing before capacity crowds in the bullrings of Barcelona. Linda Christian plays the beautiful society woman who is intrigued by the macho Mateo.
