(1966, Carlos Velo) On his mother’s deathbed, Carlos Fernández promises her to return to the town of Comala, to reunite with his father, John Gavin’s Pedro — but is it a town of ghosts? Co-adapted from Juan Rulfo’s now-classic novel, a precursor of Magic Realism, by literary titan Carlos Fuentes, who personally asked Gavin — erstwhile wooden star of Universal weepies (plus Psycho), but son of a Mexican mother and later our ambassador there — to star. He did, “so I could make something I was proud of.” In Spanish, with English subtitles.  En español, con subtítulos en inglés. Approx. 110 min. 35mm.
