"The Proud Ones"
Directed by Yves Allegret
Highly suggestive of Albert Camus' The
Plague, Yves Allegret's grim adaptation of Sartre's novel L'Amour
Redempteur was virtually unknown in this country until Martin Scorsese
"discovered" the work, and organized its re-release. Michele
Morgan plays an aristocratic French woman traveling through Mexico whose
husband dies from a mysterious disease. Stranded in a decaying Mexican
coastal town, Morgan falls for a local doctor (Gerard Philipe) who is
distraught over his wife's death. With Carlos Moctezuma, Victor Mendoza
andMichele Cardone. French with English subtitles. B&W.
