By the time the shooting of this film was completed in Argentina, Eva Perón had died. For that reason the crew remained in the country, by a request from the government, in order to film the funeral proceedings in Technicolor. See more »

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.
