Duel in the Sun

4 years, 1 month ago at Sep 5 16:34
Super-producer David O. Selznick intended to follow-up his gargantuan success of Gone with the Wind with this epic horse opera. Much like that Oscar adorned production, Duel in the Sun lacks a strong directorial signature and instead is the product of Selznick’s outsized ambition and vision. Selznick intended to top that prior film with this one, and while he misses the mark on an artistic level... read more
View all Duel in the Sun reviews
When her father is hanged for shooting his wife and her lover, half-breed Pearl Chavez goes to live with distant relatives in Texas. Welcomed by Laura Belle and her elder lawyer son Jesse, she meets with hostility from the ranch-owner himself, wheelchair-bound Senator Jackson McCanles, and with lustful interest from womanising, unruly younger son Lewt. Almost at once, already existing family tensions are exacerbated by her presence and the way she is physically drawn to Lewt. Written by Jeremy Perkins

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Director King Vidor and writer-producer David O. Selznick extract all the mythic elements from John Ford’s My Darling Clementine and blow them up to truly epic proportions. Every aspect of Duel in the Sun, from its scorched Technicolor cinematography to its protracted running time, is resolutely overheated and oversized. Beginning with the mixed-race background of Jennifer Jones’s Pearl Chavez, the film seems organized as a series of binary oppositions. This dual structure is first establish"

Selznick intended to top that prior film with this one, and while he misses the mark on an artistic level, he still managed to create a film of pulpy, overheated allure and one that is far more fascinating for its vast strangeness and faintly ridiculous melodramatics.   Those may sound like criticisms, but I find them to be engaging strengths throughout Duel in the Sun. The main thrust of the story is a love triangle that throbs with repressed emotions and mutually assured destruction, and a bevy ” read more
