THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA

5:45

Saturday, June 13

 Introduced by author James Grissom

(1964, John Huston) Defrocked clergyman turned tour bus guide Richard Burton gets caught in a flesh vs. spirit tango in a Mexican coastal village, as he becomes the object of desire for Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr, and Lolita-like Sue Lyon. Skillful adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play, keyed by Figueroa’s sensual photography of soon-to-be notorious Puero Vallarta. Approx. 125 min. 35mm.
