FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943) C 170m dir: Sam Wood

w/Ingrid Berman, Gary Cooper, Akim Tamiroff

Turgid realization of the Ernest Hemingway novel about the Spanish Civil War, but noteworthy for depth in casting and performance. Cooper is an admirable Hemingway hero. Bergman evokes both the dream and the reality of the novel's conception.
