    A very very famous film. I saw it at the theater. Here in Argentina the film’s name is “El hombre quieto”.
    I don’t remember the details because it was a long time ago, but I liked Maureen O’Hara. It is strange to see her now, after so many years.
    Sure will be interesting Gabriel’s narration.
