  • Duel in the Sun

    1946. USA. Directed by King Vidor. Screenplay by David O. Selznick, Oliver H. P. Garrett, based on the novel by Niven Busch. With Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Gregory Peck, Lionel Barrymore. After years on the stage, Gish’s return to films came in the form of supporting roles. In this epic Western, Pearl (Jones) is a woman torn between two brothers. Gish plays the doting and kind mother of the feuding siblings, and the unrequited lover of Pearl’s late father. The film’s exquisite compositions, rendered in glorious Technicolor, are reminiscent of Renaissance oil paintings. 135 min.
