THE GAUCHO (1927)
1927, Kino International, 115 min, USA, Dir: F. Richard Jones

THE GAUCHO is unique among Douglas Fairbanks' swashbucklers in both look and tone, taking place in a magnificent white city, high in the Andes, purpose-built for Fairbanks' amazing stunts. Playing an amoral Bandit King, he dances an erotic tango with the Mountain Girl - the first appearance of future screen sensation Lupe Velez.
