The Wind and the Lion

Awesome Music: The score is by Jerry Goldsmith. Tear Jerker Raisuli says goodbye to Mrs. Pedicaris. Theodore Roosevelt reads Raisuli's letter while sitting with the grizzly bear Raisuli's last line: "Is there not one thing in your life that is worth losing everything for?" Values Dissonance: No modern movie would allow even an rapscallion of a love interest be introduced by backhanding the female lead. The film often portrays random Berbers as man children, something that wouldn't fly with modern audiences. White, Scottish Sean Connery...portraying a Middle Eastern man. Yeah... Values Resonance: That said, the movie's very pointed depiction of Western imperialism and Middle Eastern politics has held up remarkably well over the years. Even today it's hard to imagine a character like Raisuli being the heroic lead of a mainstream Hollywood movie.
