Okay, as many of you recall (and offered some great off-the-top-of your-head suggestions), I"m doing a "movie trailer" for my Literature class project, and I need to collect clips. I"ve got a lot of great options for general shots already, but there are a few specific elements from the story that I"d like to include in the trailer if I can, so I thought I"d make a second, more formal and more precise request for ideas.First, here"s a brief summary of the plot of the story. It"s called "La mujer del juez" (The Judge"s Wife) and centers around the story of Nicholas Vidal, the bandit son of a local prostitute. Vidal has an intense rivalry and dislike of the local judge. He"s also dedicated to avoiding all relations with women, because when he was born, the local soothsayer foretold that he would die because of a woman. In the story, the rivalry between Vidal and the judge intensifies. The judge tries to bait him by publicly incarcerating his mother (the local prostitute) in the middle of the street with no food or water. She"s left there for three days, and Vidal, not wanting to risk the prophecy, refuses to come to her aide. Finally, the townspeople appeal to the judge"s wife, Casilda, to intervene, since she"s the only one who has any influence over the judge. Casilda is much younger than her husband, and completely devoted to her domestic duties and her children, calm and composed and never contrary, beautiful but very delicate. The judge lets Vidal"s mother go, but the mother then hangs herself for the shame of having a heartless and cowardly son who would not come to her rescue. The judge, fearful that Vidal will now try to take his revenge, flees with his family to the coast. On the way, he has a heart attack and the car crashes to the side of the road in the wilderness. Casilda, thinking that Vidal and his entire bloodthirsty gang aren"t far behind, quickly hides her children in a nearby cave and comes back to the car, prepared to "distract" the men with her wiles as long as she can to keep them away from her kids (hey, I didn"t write this, okay? LOL). Vidal does show up, but he comes alone, not having wanted to involve his men in his personal feud. The two come face to face and after an intense stare down, Vidal accepts her "terms, challenge, euphamism of choice" and they have sex for a while, both discovering secret passion that they didn"t know existed in themselves. Casilda, knowing that her kids aren"t really in danger anymore and feeling compassionate toward him, offers to let him flee to the hills before the authorities arrive, but he opts to stay with her as long as possible, thereby fulfilling his own prophecy, just as every good tragic hero does.The story takes place probably anywhere from the late 20"s to early 40"s. The descriptions of the village and the locals indicate a classic western latino "pueblo" style village. There are automobiles in the story, so it"s later than nineteenth century, but there are many clues that the village is still well-established in old traditions (Casilda wears one of those spanish-inspired lace veils over her face when she goes to church, the people still put heavy stock in the local old wise women, family values are very traditional and extremely rigid, and Vidal and his gang still raid the town on horseback). So any westerns from this time period (particularly with cars and horses in the same scene) would be helpful. I downloaded Evita for this purpose, though I think I can only use clips from that movie sparingly. Oddly, I could probably also get alway with using some shots from the Three Amigos, as long as I"m careful to use shots that the Amigos themselves aren"t in. Another element of the story that"s difficult to match is that Casilda is blond, which I don"t have to tell you is not very easy to come up with for a latina character. Again, Evita comes to mind, but besides blond hair, the two characters have almost nothing in common on the outside. This one I"m not going to be anal about, but if anybody happens to know a movie with a relatively prominent period blond latina character, I figured I might as well throw it out there.I"d like to have a cool shot of a wizened old woman to represent the wise woman who makes the prophecy about Vidal. And I"d really like to have some kind of scene of a woman in public judicial distress (kind of like Vala in Avalon 2 or Crusade, except obviously Stargate is not going to work here -- too bad!!) to represent the public baiting of Vidal"s mother.

grav_ity
has suggested that the recent "Appaloosa" might work for this latter element, so I"m downloading that as we speak.That"s a breakdown of the curiosity that is this story and the things I need for it. For the record, I am NOT planning on using any shots of two people having sex in an old-timey car, so no need to wrack your brain on that one. Besides being in poor taste, you"re not supposed to give away the ending in a trailer anyway. ;-)I"ve already picked out a piece of music that I think will work well. "The Temple of Five" from BSG Season 3.
