Bullfighter and The Lady movie scene

Robert Stack plays to the crowd in Bullfighter and The Lady.

The 1951 film drama-romance Bullfighter and The Lady was the breakthrough movie for filmmaker Budd Boetticher (Seven Men From Now).

Robert Stack (TV’s The Untouchables) stars as Chuck Regan, a brash American skeet shooting champion whose visit to Mexico introduces him to two irresistible forces: the exotic Anita de la Vega (Joy Page) and the lure of the way of the matador. Unflinching in his confidence, Regan sets out to conquer both, learning bullfighting from an icon of the Mexican corrida, Manolo Estrada (Gilbert Roland). But Regan’s headstrong assertiveness and desire to impress Anita gets the best of him when he debuts in the ring and knows there’s only one way and one place he can redeem himself.

Written by James Edward Grant from a story by Boetticher, the film is a John Wayne production and its cast also includes Katy Jurado, Virginia Grey and John Hubbard.

Originally released in theaters at 87 minutes, Olive Films’ edition features the restored 124 minute-long director’s cut.
