Morelia: Tarantino Talks de Cordova, 'Frenchman's Creek,' Spaghetti Western 'Blue'

Quentin Tarantino introduces his personal 16mm print of "Frenchman's Creek," part of the excellent Arturo de Cordova retrospective in Morelia this year, with a fast-talking infectious rush of enthusiasm. He says that he discovered the film on late night television when he was 16 or 17, and that he was in an acting class with a woman who said she liked Arturo de Cordova, and when he saw "Frenchman's Creek," he completely agreed with her -- and he watched it whenever he could again, over 20 or 30 years.  At the time, he didn't know that de Cordova was one of the great stars of Mexican cinema. He's only seen a couple of his Spanish-language films, he said, "and that's why it's so great to be at this festival. Boy is de Cordoba cool in this movie!" And he repeats "super cool" after he hears festival director Daniela Michel translate "cool" into Spanish that way. »
