Jennifer Jones should have made more films with her and guns.

Garfield had the perfect face for the chiaroscuro of noirish B&W.

Talk about coincidences! I JUST watched this film on tv today! Not a particlularly good film but it was interesting enough just for the political story it had to tell. Mecxico around 1933 overthrowing dictatorship. Favorite scene? Jennifer Jones mowing down some Mexican Gestapo like police with a machine gun!

I haven't seen this for about 30 years, but surely it's set in Cuba, not Mexico, isn't it?
