if i have anything denigrating to say, it is not about the film (which is well-acted, and cogently cast), but it is about the novel, Hem's first, which really broke his career (the stories of IN OUR TIME were nothing but vignettes, and---though poignant and promising--not alone could they put our young, aspiring, author, over the top. THE SUN ALSO RISES, made him an international sensation, setting up A FAREWELL TO ARMS, a novel largely dealing with the author's WW1 experiences, and his doomed romance with a nurse. The critics came on board the bandwagon for that one. / With a cast like Tyrone Power, Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Mel Ferrer, and Eddie Albert, this movie could not have failed, and it does not. Enjoy it, it is this side of paradise.

"The Sun Also Rises" has a wonderful cast of Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner, Erol Flynn, and Mel Ferrer. The year is 1922 and they are all in Spain. The color, the romance, the bullfighting, and the beauty of Spain all come alive from the book by Ernest Hemmingway. Don't be put off on what others say. Give this movie a chance in your DVD player. I think you will be well rewarded. .

Movies like this are why the phrase "The book is so much better." exists. The acting is terrible and I don't think anyone involved understood (or maybe even read) the source material.
