Director Budd Boetticher's love of bullfighting comes to the fore in this film drama, directed and co-written by Boetticher (and produced by John Wayne). Robert Stack plays the cocky American Chuck Regan, who travels to and falls in love with the sultry Anita de la Vega (Joy Page). In order to impress her with his prowess, he convinces the famed matador Manolo Estrada (Gilbert Roland) to mentor him in the art of bullfighting. But Chuck's carelessness causes the tragic death of Manolo, resulting in Chuck's being shunned by both the villagers and Anita. In order to regain Anita's love and the villagers' respect, Chuck re-enters the arena, taking on a bull in Manolo's honor. Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide These "WOOD AD MATS" are really Molds/Lead Forms that were intended to have molten lead poured into to them create castings, and then discarded. This was the way that Newspaper ads, press book Ad Mats and various publications were produced up until the mid 1960's. Most newspapers were done via letterpress printing and utilized what is called hot type. The lead was melted and then used to type out words and imprint pictures. Pictures were usually in the form of one of these molds, which is composed of a wood fiber material specially, designed to accept the molten lead. Once cooled the casting was secured in the desired position in the letterpress, inked and paper placed on top of the lead casting. The press was then brought down under pressure and 'whala' a spiffy movie ad for a film coming to a theater near you! Electronic typesetting made this process obsolete over 40 years ago! Today's computers and technology make this process extremely efficient. The Extremely Fine artwork in this is just incredible! My picture just does not do it justice at all. ***There are many items ready to 'buy it now' in my store!!!!*** * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * BUY IT NOW!!!
