Last of the Silent Sundays

May 1, 2017

March 7 is the last in the Silent Sunday Series. For this finale, the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse presents The Gaucho starring Douglas Fairbanks in the title role and Lupe Velez as his love interest, the Mountain Girl.

A precursor to the film will be a conversation with William Nericcio, a Chicano literary theorist and Professor of English and Comparative Literature at San Diego State University. He is the author of the award-winning Te{x}t Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the “Mexican” in America.

The screening of The Gaucho includes live accompaniment on the Playhouse’s 1924 Wurlitzer by organist Bob Salisbury.




Fun Fact (thanks to Mission Playhouse): Douglas Fairbanks had box seats on the opening night of the original Mission Play back in 1927.
