Watch Blood and Sand - Alternative Versions.
When 20th Century Fox decided to re-make Rudolph Valentino's great
silent screen triumph Blood and Sand it probably was Tyrone Power's
biggest test as an actor and a box office draw up to that time.
Valentino's performance was still fresh in everyone's mind. Well,
Tyrone Power passed the test with flying colors that showed up in Ray
Rennahan's fabulous cinematography here.
One of the previous reviewers who was from Brazil expressed a lot of
what I would have said. Tyrone Power with three roles, here, in The
Mark of Zorro and in Captain From Castile became a Latino cultural hero
for those portrayals. Hard to believe since the Power family theatrical
tradition goes back a couple of centuries in Ireland. But those
portrayals have stood the test of time and to get such an accolade from
a Latino viewer is the highest possible praise for his acting.
Tyrone Power as Juan Gallardo whose mission in life is to become an
even greater Matador than his father who was killed in the bullring,
brings a combination of panache and bumptiousness to the part. He's
bold and daring, but not terribly sophisticated and never learned to
read and write. And he's got two women all in an uproar over him, Linda
Darnell who is his wife and the temptress Dona Sol.
This loan out for Rita Hayworth playing Dona Sol is what really
launched her career as sex symbol. Dona Sol was Hayworth's trial run as
vamp and temptress, the forerunner of Gilda which was her signature
The cast is well populated with some of the best character actors
Hollywood had to offer. Anthony Quinn, Nazimova, J. Carrol Naish, Monty
Banks, John Carradine, etc., all are perfectly cast.
One I think should be singled out is Laird Cregar. Cregar plays Curro
the bullfighter critic and I think Cregar enjoyed playing this part,
allowing an actor to exact some revenge on critics as a breed.
Bullfighting isn't just some guy going into a ring to kill a bull. It's
all in the showmanship and Curro is a critic like a theater critic, not
a sportswriter. You really love to hate Curro as the film progresses
and I wonder just what made him such an expert? Cregar was fleshing out
that old expression about critics being eunuchs, they know how to do
it, but can't do it themselves. I think Cregar was paying back every
critic whoever gave him a bad review with this one.
Blood and Sand was certainly a jinxed picture. Tyrone Power died so
young of that heart attack while shooting Solomon and Sheba in Spain,
Linda Darnell died a few years later in a house fire trying to rescue
someone she thought trapped in the flames, George "Superman" Reeves who
played one of Rita Hayworth's admirers committed suicide, Rita Hayworth
had that tragically lingering Alzheimer's Disease and Laird Cregar was
the first to go of a heart attack in his twenties. Another great work
of art attached to so much tragedy.
As far as I'm concerned Rudolph Valentino starred in the silent version
of Tyrone Power's, Blood and Sand.
