Kurosawa in a Sombrero Department: Yet Another Take on the "Mexican Bandit," THE OUTRAGE | featuring PAUL NEWMAN as a "Mexican"

original posting 1/23/10 | revised June 10, 2011


They never stop coming over the transom--films I should have screened and written about in Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the "Mexican" in America; TCM is screening THE OUTRAGE (1964) starring Paul Newman as CARRASCO the rapist "Mexican" bandit. Yet another classic in the history of "Mexican" representation, and a riff-off of RASHOMON to boot--Holy Kurosawa with a sombrero, Batman!

Here's the trailer! Dig Newman's mexicanesque accent! oh, an added treat? William Shatner as "the preacher":
