Wem die Stunde schlägt was released in the year 1943。Wem die Stunde schlägt is also called as For Whom the Bell Tolls, Pour qui sonne le glas, Hvem ringer klokkerne for?, ¿Por quién doblan las campanas?, Klockan klämtar för dig, Per chi suona la campana, Por Quem os Sinos Do, Kenelle kellot soivat。
Spain in the 1930s is the place to be for a man of action like Robert Jordan. There is a civil war going on and Jordan who has joined up on the side that appeals most to idealists of that era -- like Ernest Hemingway and his friends -- has been given a high-risk assignment up in the mountains. He awaits the right time to blow up a bridge in a cave. Pilar, who is in charge there, has an ability to foretell the future. And so that night she encourages Maria, a young girl ravaged by enemy soldiers, to join Jordan who has decided to spend the night under the stars.
