For Whom the Bells Toll ~ DVD
Based on Ernest Hemingway's acclaimed novel, For Whom The Bell Tolls follows idealistic American Robert Jordan (Academy Award® winner Gary Cooper, High Noon) as he travels abroad to join up with the guerrilla forces and fight in the Spanish Civil War. Tasked with blowing up a bridge behind enemy lines, Jordan is distracted by partisan María (Academy Award® winner Ingrid Bergman, Gaslight) at base camp, who catches his eye and his heart. As Jordan's love for María grows, he not only begins to question his assignment and his politics, but also his place in this foreign war far from home. Nominated for 9 Academy Awards®, winning for support Katina Paxinou and directed by respected filmmaker Sam Wood (Kings Row, Goodbye Mr Chips), For Whom The Bell Tolls is a grand sweeping romance of epic proportions. For Whom the Bells Toll Reviews “Ingrid Bergman in an unusual role as an enabler to stoic Cooper during the Spanish Civil War.” – FilmFestivals.com “Cooper is great as the knowing and weary Robert.” – Goatdog's Movies “The film's star performances of Ingrid Bergman and Gary Cooper are appealing; Hemingway wrote the novel with Coop in mind.” – EmanuelLevy.Com Updated .
