During the Napoleonic Wars, a British captain is sent to Spain to help prevent the French from stealing a powerful cannon.
Roger Ebert's review of the film 'Papillon' uses this movie as a guideline: "Sophia Loren was once in a movie named 'The Pride and the Passion,' which involved hauling an enormous cannon halfway across Europe through deep mud. By the time they heaved the cannon into position, I had long since stopped caring, and even had a little difficulty remembering why they were doing it in the first place. The movie had expended enormous energy without cause." Throughout the 'Papillon' review he kept referencing Sophia and the cannon as something he cared less about. Both this and 'Papillon', in his opinion, had big budgets, big stars, but didn't move him.
How these Spanish love their moment of truth - to drench the ground with their blood - to die. Why?
In the night scene when they are camped amidst the windmills, the smoke from the fires just goes up and hangs there but the windmills are spinning madly the entire time.
