The life and times of the legendary Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata are brought to the screen in this powerful production of John Steinbeck’s screenplay. Marlon Brando gives a stunning portrayal of the man who starts life as a peasant and grows to resent and reject the feudal system that harms the poor. Ultimately, in partnership with his brother (Anthony Quinn), he rises to fight it.
