Starring Marlon Brando, Jean Peters, Anthony Quinn
The life and times of the legendary Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata are brought to the screen in this powerful biopic written by John Steinbeck. Marlon Brando delivers a riveting portrayal of a leader who starts life as a peasant and grows to resent and reject the feudal system that keeps his country’s poor in servitude. Ultimately, in partnership with his brother (an Oscar-winning Anthony Quinn), he rises to fight it.
