Format: DVD
Set in 1870's Argentina, a gaucho (an Argentinean cowboy) played by Rory Calhoun is sentenced to army service after killing a man in a fair fight. There, he clashes with the strong willed Major (Richard Boone) determined to break him. When he escapes to the mountains where he becomes a bandit hero to the Argentinean peasants, the single minded Major continues his relentless pursuit. Directed by Jacques Tourneur (CAT PEOPLE), the film benefits enormously from being filmed in the actual Argentina locations which gives the film a validity that sets it apart from a typical Hollywood western. Filmed in the Pampas and mountains, it looks genuine in a way that no soundstage or North American location could replicate. Unfortunately, some of the casting is problematic. Calhoun seems to be right out of Dodge City rather than Buenos Aires and that bland specimen of the American male, Hugh Marlowe (ALL ABOUT EVE) is a fish out of water. Fortunately, Boone seems believable and Gene Tierney has the grace and elegance of an Argentinean aristocrat. The film is notable for its era in its frank relationship between Calhoun and Tierney who are obviously loving and living without benefits of marriage and the film's ambiguous ending that leaves the fate of its major characters in doubt. With Everett Sloane.

The Fox DVD via Spain is in its proper full frame 1.33 aspect ratio (it's pre-wide screen) but it looks a bit smudgy at times but other than that a more than acceptable transfer.

If ever there has been great views, this film has them. Practically everything has been filmed in wonderful nature and old authentic buildings. The story is not as good. It is a bit hard to pinpoint what is the problem. Perhaps the story is a bit too melodramatic. Rory Calhoun is a great looking guy, but not a gaucho. He is a cowboy. Boone is always good and looks like an Argentinian. This is film worth watching, because it is so unique. This film must have been really great on a big canvas of a real movie theater.

The DVD arrived earlier than expected and in very good conditions. So much better than what I thought. The movie is great!

Format: DVD
While this film ostensibly is based on an American novel, its plot and themes seem stolen from "Martin Fierro," a 19th century Argentine epic gaucho poem. There are plenty of beautiful landscapes and scenes of stampeding cattle to keep you visually entertained---in addition to pretty Gene Tierney and hubba-hubba-hubba Rory Calhoun. Both wander around through part of the film with strategically torn tops that chastely communicate "come hither." Calhoun is wooden as befits his role, and Tierney just sits, stands, and faints throughout the film, looking Gene Tierneyesque but not having much to do. Hugh Marlowe of "All About Eve" fame offers a lot of platitudinous talk of "progress", of the end of the barbarous life of the gauchos when confronted by the forces of the city (i.e.civilization). This is a motif of Argentine history and a standard of Western fare. See the flick and chalk if off as a Western set in the Southern Hemisphere.
