Homage to Hans Hurch

Comanche Station

Budd Boetticher
USA 1960
74min
V'17

When I first saw COMANCHE STATION in the mid-1960’s, I wrote and filed a card that read: “Personal, effective Boetticher-Scott Western about a man searching the plains for his wife, captured years ago by the Comanche; he saves another man’s wife, then must contend with three outlaws accompanying them, who are after the $5,000 reward put up by the woman’s husband. Written with depth and character, well acted, and strikingly directed, this is an evocative, often ambiguous, fascinating work.” (Peter Bogdanovich)

In presence of Hartmut Bitomsky.

With V’01-TRAILER: ELVIS by Jonas Mekas.
