About this item
The most compelling characters ever created by Ernest Hemingway are brought to life by an equally awe-inspiring cast for this "excellent" (New York Herald Tribune) and stunningly faithful adaptation of the author's "The Sun Also Rises"! In 1920s Paris, a group of disillusioned expatriates pursues a life of utter debauchery: American veteran Jake Barnes (Tyrone Power) lives under the cloud of an emasculating war injury; Lady Brett Ashley (Ava Gardner) substitutes a life of promiscuity for the love she cannot share with Jake; Mike Campbell (Errol Flynn) deliberately douses his passions with alcohol; Robert Cohn (Mel Ferrer) becomes more and more hopelessly obsessed with Brett; and Bill Gorton (Eddie Albert) lives faster than his writing can entail. Each member of this "lost generation" clings to the bohemian lifestyle that Paris bars and Spanish bullrings offer... living as though they were about to die.
