Brash young Spanish peasant Juan Gallardo (Tyrone Power) aspires to follow his dead father’s footsteps into the bullring, despite his mother’s fears. Bidding his childhood sweetheart Carmen (Linda Darnell) farewell, Juan and his friends travel to Madrid to learn the bullfighting craft. Years later, when Juan’s fame as a matador soars, he returns to Seville to marry Carmen. Soon, Juan’s head is turned by the elegant temptress Doña Sol De Muira (Rita Hayworth), and his career takes a turn.
Decently scripted and well acted, Company Business missed many people’s radars. Take a few seconds out to remember that its setting is the time that it was filmed – while the jokes may seem dated now, they were funny at the time for a Europe waking up to the end of the iron curtain. The two leads have decent chemistry and the supporting roles are well done – it’s actually nice to enjoy the film for having no unnecessary love interest to distract the story.
It will never be an awards contender by any stretch of the imagination and certainly not Gene Hackman’s finest hour, it’s still worth watching.
