Nick James, former editor of Sight & Sound magazine, presented the film His Kind of Woman, by John Farrow, at the 20th edition of the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM). The film is part of the Imaginary Mexico: Robert Mitchum Program, which was suggested by director, screenwriter and producer Bertrand Tavernier, according to Daniela Michel, founder and general director of FICM.
His Kind of Woman tells the story of Dan Milner, a gambler with no trade or profit, who receives a substantial offer from a mysterious gentleman. He will have to move to Morros Lodge, a beautiful Mexican resort, stay in a bungalow, and wait for someone who will give him instructions. However, before reaching his destination, Dan meets the attractive Leonore Bren.
James said that this movie had many delays and that Robert Mitchum did his heist scenes all the time. "He started drinking on set and ended up getting into fights with the crew, one day he destroyed the set, but the next day he apologized [...] The end result was a wonderful movie."
Before the start of the film, Nick James stated: “You haven't seen anything like this. It is very strange and I hope you enjoy it.
