Apart from his marriage to Hepburn, whom he met in 1954 when they both performed in a play in New York, Ferrer was best known for his roles in Brave Bulls
, a 1951 film on the life of a bullfighter, in Lili, a 1953 romance in which he played a lame puppeteer opposite Leslie Caron, The Sun Also Rises and in the 1956 epic War and Peace, in which he played prince Andrei Bolkonsky opposite Henry Fonda and Hepburn.
He received critical acclaim for his role as the bitter, crippled puppeteer in Lili (1953) and found stardom as the charismatic matador in The Brave Bulls
He also won critical acclaim as Luis Bello in Robert Rossen's 1951 depiction of the public and private life of a bullf ighter in The Brave Bulls
, based on a Tom Lea book, and starred opposite Hepburn in 1956's War and Peace.
While they remain on the field, Ian Millward's team continue to march on, but the brave Bulls
came mighty close to completing a sensational, second-half comeback.
You don't have a good spectacle, neither brave bulls
nor good bullfighters.
