A different kind of western, on Argentine&#39;s Pampas, an ill-tempered Gaucho Martin (Rory Calhoun) killed on a knife&#39;s fight a man who insulted is &quot;brother&quot; (Hugh Marlowe) his was sentenced to serve the Army, there he meets a tough Major Salinas (Pat Boone) the clash between them is matter of time, due the nature of both, he deserts and becomes an outlaw as Valverde, he gathered a bunch of all sort of the men, including his former inmates at prison, meanwhile he falling in love by the beauty Teresa (Gene Tierney), Major Salinas wounded on right hand was a crippled on fight on Martin&#39;s escape pursued him on the edge of the Pampas, however the sudden pregnancy of Teresa will change their destiny, it seems odd at first look, therefore has something magic on this unusual western, mainly by the priceless direction of the master Jacques Tourneur and the beautiful Argentine&#39;s landscape, compelling story with religious oriented!!!<br/><br/>Resume:<br/><br/>First watch: 2019 / How many: 1 / Source: DVD / Rating: 7.5

Jacques Tourneur makes very stylish Westerns, from CANYON PASSAGE before to WICHITA after, and WAY OF A GAUCHO is about the &quot;original cowboys,&quot; the titular Spanish Argentine bandits who &quot;Go with God&quot; and are as patriotic as they come, and go: Making the famous &quot;last refuge of a scoundrel&quot; quote more pro than con, at least for one in particular who rides in the glory of the Old Days...<br/><br/>That we never really learn about so we can only follow the intrepid horse-clopping footsteps of Rory Calhoun&#39;s &quot;condor eyed&quot; Martin Penalosa as the best scenes have our anti-hero breaking the law, sent under Richard Boone&#39;s harsh military command and eventually finding his own way... <br/><br/>This is where things slowly collapse upon an overly grandiose soundtrack and a maze of plotlines marring what should&#39;ve been a more simple, honest Western that Tourneur&#39;s good at. Painted with broad strokes, the surrounding countrysides feel like another world entirely, so there&#39;s a Fantasy element underneath the deep brown saddles and painted red scarves, as if Penalosa&#39;s more a lean Barbarian than maverick horseman, and with Tourneur, a Gothic undertone lurks as well... <br/><br/>But our man needed more of a goal, an urgency, than to ride along (with forced ingenue Gene Tierney when guitar-strumming Everette Sloane would&#39;ve made a terrific sidekick) full of stubborn, woeful pride. This GAUCHO looks terrific though.

Gorgeous location photography of Argentina and the subtle, lyrical direction of Jacques Tourneur are the main reasons for watching this story of a gaucho who becomes first outlaw and then revolutionary, in an attempt to preserve his way of life from encroaching foreign influences and money. The acting is somewhat uneven - Calhoun and especially Tierney are somewhat miscast, though Richard Boone and others in smaller roles come off as more authentic.
