Time Out says

An uncredited Howard Hawks directed some of the material in this rumbustious traversal of the Mexican revolutionary leader's rise and fall, with Beery leading from the front as future president Pancho, part moral crusader, part crazy bandito. The big MGM production typically plays fast and loose with the facts so it's as much an action spectacular as a genuine historical chronicle, but there's much good humour and a terrifically hammy death scene where one unfortunate villain is coated in honey and left under the sun for the ants.
