Passion (1954) Cornel Wilde, Yvonne De Carlo



full movie

In old Spanish California, dashing cattleman Juan Obregon returns to the rancho of his friend Gaspar Melo, to find he's fathered a son on Rosa, one of Gaspar's identical twin daughters. Overjoyed, he plans to formalize his "unofficial" marriage. But trouble brews; Melo's land is of unclear title and the new Don Domingo hopes to grab it for his own profit. Violence results. 

Director:

 Allan Dwan

Writers:

 Beatrice A. Dresher 

Stars:

 Cornel WildeYvonne De CarloRaymond Burr

The cast is good: Cornel Wilde, Yvonne De Carlo (in a dual role as Wilde's ladylike wife and her tomboyish twin sister!), Raymond Burr (as the Sheriff), and Lon Chaney Jr. (as a drunken brute). The film, set in Old California, follows a typical revenge story. The scenery is beautiful and it was filmed in Technicolor. Nothing real memorable so I give Passion ★★

Cornel Wilde and Raymond Burr
