Che! (1969) is an American biographical film starring Omar Sharif as Marxist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. It follows Guevara from when he first landed in Cuba in 1956 to his death in Bolivia in 1967, although the film does not portray the formative pre-Cuban revolution sections of Che’s life as described in the autobiographical book The Motorcycle Diaries (1993).[3] The film was directed by Richard Fleischer.

The film tells of Che Guevara (Omar Sharif), a young Argentine doctor who proves his mettle during the Cuban guerilla war in the late 1950s. He gains the respect of his men and becomes the leader of a patrol.
