HASH(0x9e830210) out of 5 stars A BEAUTIFUL TECHNICOLOR BLU RAY FROM FOX July 17 2013
By MICHAEL STONEHILL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
"Blood and Sand"(1941) is the first of three Technicolor Blu-rays that will be released by Fox this year starring Tyrone Power with the other two being "Jesse James"(1939) and "The Black Swan"(1942). Those who have any doubts about how these old Technicolor films might look on Blu-ray after seventy years can put all those doubts away. "Blood and Sand" looks absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray and if you're a fan of Technicolor films from this era then you'll be pleased. All the credit should go to the film restorers at Fox for bringing this film back to life in a dazzling Blu-ray presentation(Bitrate: 35.08). "Blood and Sand" won a richly deserved Oscar for Best Cinematography(Ernest Palmer & Ray Rennahan) but credit must be given also to it's director, Rouben Mamoulian who according to the liner notes "based many of the film's set designs and color schemes on the works of master Spanish painters such as El Greco, Velasquez and Goya." Many of the scenes in the film do look like paintings come to life and that is brought out to amazing effect in this Blu-ray presentation. For a film that's over seventy years old, it looks brand new considering that some Technicolor films released recently on Blu-ray look almost artificial. Not so with "Blood and Sand". Colors are vibrant, especially the blues and reds. Look no further than the toreador costumes worn by the bull fighters. If I had to pick one color that stands out among all the others in would be "Gold". You can see the smallest details in these costumes and will have a greater appreciation to all the hard work the costume designers did in making each one authentic. The story is a familiar one, that of a poor boy who rises to the top of the bull fighting profession only to be brought down by his ego and the wrong woman(the beautiful Rita Hayworth). All the actors look great in Technicolor. Tyrone Power was one of the most handsome leading men in films and his good looks are really on display in this one. However, acting honors go to the beautiful Linda Darnell as his faithful and long suffering wife. Nazimova, the great silent star, comes in a close second as Tyrone Power's mother. Spoiler Alert: For the record, there are only two bullfighting scenes in the movie, one about an hour in(this is the longest) and a short one at the end which closes the movie. Both scenes are done tastefully all things considered. "Blood and Sand" is 125 minutes(Aspect Ratio: 1.33.1) and contains the following subtitles: English SDH and Spanish. Audio is as follows: English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0; Spanish and French Dolby Digital 1.0. The only negative I can say about this beautiful Blu-ray from Fox is that it came in one of those awful Eco-cases so if you have any old HD cases laying around you might want to switch the picture insert and disc into one of those instead. To sum up, many thanks to the restorers at Fox for beautiful work they did on this Technicolor film from the Fox Catalog. It comes highly recommended.

HASH(0x9e830420) out of 5 stars A Technicolor Oscar Winner Sept. 5 2015
By Michael P. O'Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Apparently the original Technicolor negative is long gone, but whatever means Fox had in creating this Blu-ray image, it works well enough for me. The image is somewhat sharper than the previous DVD and the color , though not as robust as a Technicolor film better preserved (such as Gone With The Wind or The Wizard of Oz), the presentation succeeds in showcasing the visuals which emulate famous painters such as Goya, etc.

The director's The Mark of Zorro, also starring Tyrone Power, and photographed in stunning black and white, is a more tightly edited and entertaining film, but Blood and Sand is well worth watching nevertheless.

HASH(0x9e830714) out of 5 stars Classic films look great on blu-ray Aug. 16 2013
By Dan Ade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
20th Century Fox under Darryl F. Zanuck produced many great films that may be unknown to younger audiences. Blu-ray gives todays viewers the chance to see these films close to the way they looked in theaters at the time of their initial release. This is a melodramatic story of the rise and fall of an ambitious bullfighter beautifully rendered in softer than normal Technicolor hues. Don't miss the chance to see this early Rita Haworth classic.

HASH(0x9e830774) out of 5 stars Arrrah toro! June 9 2014
By Paul Q. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Sorry for the cheezy title. I must admit I have always enjoyed this movie, with the scenery and music... it gives a good Hollywood glimpse of the "torrero" life of Juan Gallardo.Nice music and okay drama. Having this in Blu-Ray vs. VHS makes it all the more better.
