EL ULTIMO CENTAURO-La epopeya del gaucho Juan Moreira (1923)

This film, the second version of the Juan Moreira story by Eduardo Gutiérrez (first filmed in 1973), exist. But it is not going to show up anywhere and neither Kino, Image, Milestone or anyone of those companies would ever bother to make it available.

In the meantime, I want to share with you this obscure theme that I found almost by accident in Buenos Aires. This score is from 1931, and this melody (not a tango) is probably intended for a sound reissue of the movie since there is no other reason why such a theme would exist at the time.

The lady in the cover is Libertad Lamarque one year after her film debut (in ADIOS ARGENTINA, a silent but still the first Argentine feature film with a soundtrack) who recorded it for RCA Victor:
