Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
For Whom the Bell Tolls largely depoliticizes the issues surrounding the Spanish Civil War and focuses on the romantic adventure in Ernest Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Almost none of the cast is remotely Spanish, and Ingrid Bergman, for all her fine acting skills, struggles perhaps more than the other cast members to bring credibility to her role. Remarkably faithful in most other ways to its source novel, the restored version of For Whom the Bell Tolls sprawls over its 168-minute running time. The action sequences are very good for a 1943 film, and the overall look and texture are outstanding. Although the film was nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best Picture, it won only one, for Best Supporting Actress Katina Paxinou.
