Image:Behold a Pale Horse cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 02:09, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Behold a Pale Horse (film)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

This article has failed its GA nomination. Issues include:

  • The lead is insufficient, as evidenced by the cleanup banner at the top. See WP:LEAD and remember that the lead must be an overview of the entire article.
  • The prose does not yet meet the "well-written" standard. Examples:
    • "Behold a Pale Horse is a 1964 film directed by Fred Zinnemann, based on the novel Killing a Mouse on Sunday by Emeric Pressburger, which itself is loosely based on the life of the Spanish anarchist guerrilla, Francisco Sabaté Llopart‎." A rather long sentence, and it has unnecessary commas.
    • "The film is the story of a Catalan guerrilla exiled in France after the Spanish Civil War returning to Catalonia to visit his mother." Very choppy and initally confusing; it almost sounded like the "Spanish Civil War" returned to Catalonia.
    • "Opening on shots from the Spanish Civil War, and a line of Spanish refugees crossing the border into France after defeat by the Francoists, Manuel Artiguez turns away from the border and back towards Spain." Should be, "The movie opens..."
    • "However, once inside the hospital, he kills a few officers, but is finally shot himself. "
  • Inline citations should be consistently formatted. Web citations should have publishers and last access dates in addition to URLs and title.s
  • "One of the film's stars, Omar Sharif, went so far as to refer to it as a "bad film" by a "good director".[12]" The tone of "went so far" is not very encyclopedic.
  • The stubby paragraphs should be merged, and the "Home video release history" should probably be integrated into the previous section.
  • File:Behold pale horse score.jpg – the fair use rationale is weak and does not explain why the image adds to the article.
  • The "Score" section is stubby and needs more references.
  • Are you sure that you have exhausted all available sources? A simple Google Book reveals this. Dabomb87 (talk) 01:49, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
