THE SUN ALSO RISES was 20th Century Fox's big-budget 'prestige' film
for 1957, based on one of Hemingway's best-known novels, shot on
location in Paris and Mexico (substituting for Spain), and starring the
studio's long-reigning superstar, Tyrone Power, surrounded by some of
the screen's most legendary actors (Ava Gardner, Errol Flynn, Mel
Ferrer, and Eddie Albert). With all the talent assembled in front of
and behind the camera, producer Darryl F. Zanuck felt confident that
the film would be an enduring classic for both his own independent
company, and his studio.
It wasn't, unfortunately...
The problem with the film was a fundamental one; the 'Lost Generation'
Hemingway wrote of were disillusioned young Americans, who, shattered
by the horror and brutality of a meaningless 'Great War', lost their
innocence, and became a 'live fast, die young' crowd of expatriates,
settling in Paris. These were men and women in their twenties and
thirties...yet the actors chosen to portray them were all ten to twenty
years older! The most glaring example of this can be seen in the film's
star, Tyrone Power. As newspaperman Jake Barnes, a vet whose war
injuries render him impotent, unable to satisfy the woman he loves (Ava
Gardner), and, therefore, the 'perfect' observer of his love's romantic
entanglements with other men, Power seems more a victim of a midlife
crisis than a young man devastated about losing his manhood. In his
next-to-last film, Power, at 44, was aging badly, his hair thinning and
his slender, 'movie idol' good looks surrendering to a middle-aged
paunch. Only when he smiles do the years seem to lift, a bit, and a
ghost of the "too handsome to be true" younger man appears. Adding to
his physical deterioration was an undiagnosed heart condition, which
would kill him, in less than two years.
His co-star, Ava Gardner, at 35, was going through a decline, as well,
but, as with her character, Lady Brett Ashley, her vices were the cause
of her self-destruction. Both Brett and Ava were hedonistic women too
fond of booze, bullfighters, and nightlife, and in Ava's case,
once-classic features were beginning to develop bags and wrinkles that
makeup and lighting couldn't hide. Seeing Power, Mel Ferrer, Flynn, and
young future film mogul Robert Evans (as a bullfighter), all lusting
after her can lead a viewer to wonder if the War had impaired
everyone's eyesight, as well as their judgment!
Coming off best are Errol Flynn and Eddie Albert. Flynn, at 48, long
past his 'glamorous' prime (he and Power had been Hollywood's
best-looking 'swashbucklers' of the early 40s), had become a very
credible character actor, usually portraying variations of himself. His
'Mike Campbell', an alcoholic who is impoverished but still clinging to
his pride, was, sadly, a dead-on assessment of Errol Flynn, as well.
Like Power, he would be dead in two years, a victim of his own
excesses. On the other hand, Eddie Albert, at 49, had long been
health-conscious, and his performance as a drunk was simply good
acting; paired with Flynn, they 'steal' the film, particularly during
the famous Pamplona bull run, when the duo flee for their lives (while
guzzling wine), and Flynn attempts to use a bad check as a cape to
'fight' a bull!
The drama seems overdrawn, the romance lacks 'fire', and the resolution
is a hollow one. Even with the pretty scenery, Hugo Friedhofer's
soaring film score, and Henry King's skill as a director, THE SUN ALSO
RISES fails to generate more than a curiosity value, at the sight of so
many actors, past their prime, trying to seem youthful and dynamic.
The studio just released the film on DVD; seeing photos of Power,
Flynn, and Gardner between takes, and hearing director Henry King's
audio reminiscences of the production are possibly more entertaining
than the feature, itself!
