"For Whom the Bell Tolls" is a 1943 film in Technicolor based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway. It stars Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, Akim Tamiroff and Katina Paxinou. The film was adapted for the screen by Dudley Nichols and was directed by Sam Wood. The film became the top box-office hit of 1943, grossing $11 million. It was also nominated for nine academy awards, winning one.

Restoration
