Personally, I totally despise the sport of bullfighting - So, watching Blood & Sand was a real endurance test for me.

In this film's over-long story about a matador-wannabe - There was just way too much dreary soap opera and annoying religiosity for my liking.

And, when it came to Dona Sol and her "headaches" - This was the point where I finally got really fed up with this one for good.

"Ole!"

Personally speaking here - I found 1941's "Blood and Sand" (that's "B.S." for short) to be nothing but a laughable cinematic curiosity piece. It was all pure Catholic kitsch heavily spiced with the flavour of Spain (and the psychotic passion for bullfighting, thrown in for good measure).

IMO - The sport of bullfighting (like cockfighting) has got to be the absolute, most despicable form of "crowd-mentality" entertainment, imaginable, in the entire world.

Within 15 minutes of watching this picture I was already bored to tears with the whole B.S. of "B.S." - But I patiently stuck with it to the bitter end.

It wasn't until this film's final moment that the meaning behind its title was finally revealed to the viewer.... But - WTF!? - "B.S." was a major disappointment on all counts.... "Ole!"

A picture that truly capturers the entire life of one of Spain's greatest matador's. Tyrone Power comes in after a youth ably plays how he learned to be a great matador. There are so few movies about a matador's life Although a romance movie, "Blood and Sand" shows us a matador from his teens until he become a full matador. A fascinating story!
