  • Riders of the Purple Sage

    1925. USA. Directed by Lynn Reynolds. With Tom Mix. Dalí, familiar with Mix's films from his viewings at the Cineclub Español, ridiculed the perceived pretensions of European cinema, which were in stark contrast with the dependable narratives of the American Western. Cinematic representations informed Dalí's concept of the American West, and he was fascinated by the imagery; he even transplanted an iconic frontier stagecoach into the landscape of his native Cadaqués in the painting Moment of Transition (1934). Silent, with musical accompaniment. Approx. 66 min.

In the Film exhibition Salvador Dalí: Consumer/Consumed
