Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 1951
Running time:106 minutes
Cast:Mel Ferrer, Miroslava Stern, Anthony Quinn, Eugene Iglesias
Director:Robert Rossen
Writer:Tom Bright

Description: Mel Ferrer and Anthony Quinn are perfectly cast in The Brave Bulls. Ferrer plays a star matador who is the idol of the crowds, an image carefully cultivated by Quinn, his manager. The matador is unbeatable until the woman he loves (Miroslava) perishes in an auto accident. Wracked by guilt and self-doubt, Ferrer is gored in his next battle. The rest of the film traces Ferrer's slow and torturous regaining of his courage. Based on the novel by Tom Lea, The Brave Bulls manages to convey the euphoria and blood-lust of the aficionados without offending the sensibilities of the Hollywood censors. The film's greatest asset is the gut-wrenching camera work by James Wong Howe and Floyd Crosby.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
