(Mat 2B; Still No. 415) Glenn Ford and Stella Stevens are starred as a construction camp doctor and an entertainer, respectively, in Rage," new Columbia Pictures release in Eastman color also
starring David Reynoso.
Review of ‘Rage’
Rugged Glenn Ford and sultry Stella Stevens star in “Rage,” a powerful suspense story told with harsh and gritty realism by producer-director Gilberto Gazcon. The Columbia Pictures release in Eastman color, filmed in starkly beautiful Mexican locations that have seldom been brought to the screen, opened yesterday at the...... Theatre. “Rage” is absorbing entertainment, punctuated by fine star performances, which bares some revealing aspects of human relationships and attitudes.
Ford plays a doctor whose tragic past has made him guiltobsessed, insulated against any further human contacts. His wife having died in childbirth and with her their new-born infant while he attended them, Ford has shouldered a crushing burden of fruitless guilt. He has buried himself in a desolate area of Mexico at a construction site where he is the only medical doctor for miles, and is quietly and efficiently drinking himself to death.
Miss Stevens, an itinerant entertainer, arrives at the construction camp with a group of girls who are wildly welcomed by the women-hungry men. She fails, however, to pierce the
armor Ford has encased himself in against all human warmth and contact. But when Ford is bitten by a rabid dog, and must journey through the desert wilderness to obtain treatment before the dread virus reaches his brain. Miss Stevens eggs him on, by turns lashing him with caustic contempt and then pleading with him to persevere. Her woman’s warmth awakens new desire in him; also, a desire to survive and live more than the half-life of his recent existence.
Ford is good as always as the medical man who comes alive again. The sensuous Miss Stevens, whose emoting in “Synanon” marked her as a comer as a fine serious actress, fully measures up to the dramatic requirements of her role in “Rage.” She and Ford make an outstanding romantic team.
“Rage” was written for the screen by Teddi Sherman, Gilberto Gazcon and Fernando Mendez; the screenplay is based on an original story by Jesus Velazquez, Guillermo Hermandez and Gazcon. David Reynoso also stars. Richard Goldstone served as executive producer of the Cinematografica Jalisco, S. A. production.
Gilberto Gazcon, Director of ‘Rage’
tr ee a
Although he is only 36, Gilbert Gazcon is already a seasoned film maker whose latest production, “Rage,” starring Glenn Ford and Stella Stevens, is currently at the ...... Theatre. A Columbia Pictures release in Eastman color, “Rage” was produced on location in Mexico with David Reynoso, Mexican actor, also starred.
Gazcon, one of Mexico’s most honored film makers, now figures to cut a wide swath on the the international motion picture scene, with “Rage.” The engrossing drama, story of how a guilt-ridden doctor is won back to faith in life by the stubborn courage of a sultry entertainer, was produced and directed by Gazcon, who also co-authored.
The producer-director comes of a Mexican motion picture family, both his father and uncle having made films for the local market. Their company, Cinema
tografica Jalisco, was Gilberto’s training ground. He worked as a laborer, handled props, learned production accounting — and at night wrote original stories neither his uncle or his father would buy. Finally, when Gilberto was 19, Uncle Raul took a chance on an original story, “Fierecilla (“Little Fear’), which proved successful at the boxoffice. Gilberto’s first directorial effort, “El Boxero” ((“The Fighter”), for which he wrote the script, won 11 awards, including the Ariel, Mexico’s Oscar. The second picture Gazcon directed, “Los Desarraigados,”’ which he also wrote, garnered another 11 awards, and was honored at the Venice Film Festival.
“Rage” is based on an original story by Jesus Velasquez, Guillermo Hernandez and Gazcon and was adapted for the screen by Teddi Sherman, Gazcon and Fernandez Mendez.
Made In Mexico
The Mexican city of Durango is some 600 miles north of Mexico City, and many a Hollywood film has been made there, including such recent pictures as “The Glory Guys,” “Major Dundee” and “The Sons of Katy Elder.” Also made in Durango is “Rage,” new Columbia Pictures release starring Glenn Ford, Stella Stevens and David Reynoso at the Theatre in Eastman color.
“Rage,” oddly enough, is a Mexican production, the first ever made in Durango. Apart

In their previous film pairings, Miss Stevens demonstrated a flair for comedy in such productions as “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father” and “Advance to the Rear.” The sultry star’s strong dramatic performance in “Synanon” revealed another facet of Miss Steven’s talent and led to her role in “Rage” opposite Ford, who plays a doctor living with a crushing burden of guilt, brought on when his wife and infant child both died while he attended them; though they died through no fault of his, he has been remorseful ever since. He assuages the pain of his guilt-ridden existence by frequently drinking himself into a stupor, in a remote Mexican construction camp.
Miss Stevens is seen as a sultry blonde whose bruising encounters with men and life have failed to quench her spirit. When she visits the remote camp with a group of entertainers, she tries to establish contact with Ford, but he rebuffs her. It is only when Ford is bitten by a rabid dog and has only 48 hours to obtain proper medical assistance before the rabies virus reaches his brain, that she instills in him a will to live and to overcome the difficult obstacles of the desert wilderness they must traverse.
“Ragi” is a Cinematografica Jalesco, S.A. production.

In Hot Water
“Rage,” starring Glenn Ford, Stella Stevens and David Reynoso was filmed in Mexico in its entirety. The Columbia Pictures release, now at the...... Theatre in Eastman color, is set in an isolated Mexican construction camp with Ford as a doctor there and Miss Stevens as an entertainer.
The film, a dramatic and suspenseful one in which the two stars make a desperate journey for medical assistance when Ford is bitten by a rabid dog, was produced under such varied meteorological conditions as sandstorms and broiling subtropical suns. Naturally, water was important on location.
And water was especially important during two _ bathing scenes: one involving showers taken by Miss Stevens and six other lovely young women, and the other showing the sultry blonde star bathing in a large oil barrel. The water, it must be mentioned, was plenty hot, in keeping with the temperature during production.
Mexican actor David Reynoso, a school dropout and former child bullfighter, currently is starred with Glenn Ford and Stella Stevens in “Rage,” a powerful drama filmed in Eastman color in Mexico. The Columbia Pictures release, produced and directed by Gilberto Gazcon, presents Reynoso as a construction worker who helps Ford in his 48-hour race for medical attention after he has been bitten by a rabid dog.
Reynoso is the son of a lieutenant colonel who fought with Pancho Villa and Zapata in Mexico’s wars of independence. After the wars, Reynoso, Sr., supported his family via various unorthodox occupations: as a nonlicensed street “physician,” as a human fly who climbed steep walls for a few coins and as a bull fighter.
David became a torero, himself, when he was just 11. He fought real bulls, but small ones, for two years, when his mother made him quit and go to school.
A family financial crisis forced him to leave school. He delivered flowers and eventually bought a taxi with the money he earned. He leased out his cab to other drivers and became a candy butcher on trains. When he was 17, however, he returned to the bullring, and was hailed as a torero with a future, but quit the ring to become a whiskey salesman. His break came when Armilla, a top bullfight star and his close friend, arranged for him to sing’ at a fiesta where he was seen by a Mexican film producer.
“Rage,” based on an original story by Jesus Velazquez, Guillermo Hernandez and Gazcon, was written for the screen by Teddi Sherman, Fernando Mendez and Gazcon.
