The Pride and the Passion is a 1957 war drama film set in Spain during the Napoleonic Wars. The film stars Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, and Sophia Loren. The story begins with a group of Spanish guerrillas led by Miguel (Frank Sinatra) attacking a military supply train headed towards Valencia. In the process, they capture a large and formidable cannon which they plan to use against the French army. However, the cannon is too bulky to move and requires several men to carry it.

Meanwhile, a British naval officer, Captain Anthony Trumbull (Cary Grant), is sent on a mission to aid the Spanish guerrillas in their fight against the French. He meets up with Miguel and learns of the cannon they have captured. Trumbull devises a plan to transport the cannon across the country to the cathedral in Avila where it can be used to blast open the city gates and allow the Spanish army to enter.

Trumbull and Miguel, along with a beautiful villager named Juana (Sophia Loren), set out on their perilous journey. Along the way, they encounter numerous obstacles, including treacherous mountain terrain, dangerous river crossings, and attacks from French troops.

As the trio travels together, tensions rise between Miguel and Trumbull over their different strategies for utilizing the cannon. However, they are forced to put their differences aside when they are attacked by a French detachment and must work together to protect the cannon.

Throughout the journey, Trumbull and Juana develop a romantic relationship, much to the dismay of Miguel, who is also in love with Juana. Meanwhile, Trumbull struggles with his feelings of guilt over a failed mission in Portugal and grapples with his desire for redemption.

The film ends with the trio successfully transporting the cannon to Avila, where the Spanish army launches a successful attack, thanks to the cannon's devastating power. Trumbull and Miguel are reconciled, and Trumbull earns the respect of the Spanish people for his heroic efforts.
