Introduction by Michael Barker of Sony Pictures Classics on December 22
Gloriously shot on location in Argentina, this majestic South American Western is beautifully writ in the dusty browns, pale greens, and brilliant sky blues of the Pampas. It’s there that a hot-tempered gaucho (Rory Calhoun) deserts the army and goes rogue to lead a band of cowboy outlaws in revolt against the railroad developers threatening their traditional way of life. Co-starring Gene Tierney as an aristocrat turned bandit bride, Way of a Gaucho is among Tourneur’s most pictorially ravishing films and one of the most eloquent variations on his enduring theme of individual freedom versus the subjugating forces of civilization.
