The Mexican revolution and the downfall of Maximillian is stunningly portrayed in this all-stops-out Warner Bros costume drama. John Huston had a hand in the script, there’s a typically luscious and rousing score by Korngold, and the exemplary supporting cast includes John Garfield, Gale Sondergaard and Donald Crisp. ‘See it now! Remember it always! A story so momentous it required six Academy Award stars and a cast of 1186 players!’, cried Warners’ publicity machinery.
