A Tribute to King Vidor

A Tribute to King Vidor

Prior to the screening of "Ruby Gentry," ticket holders (tickets can be pre-purchased online or at the Festival HQ) and Mogul Pass holders are invited to a reception at Whalebone Vineyard, a cabernet-centric winery and vineyard planted on King Vidor’s former ranch in Willow Creek on Sunday at noon. Lust, betrayal and revenge all collide in King Vidor’s 1952 romantic drama “Ruby Gentry,” set in a small town riven by strict social divisions deep in the swamplands of North Carolina. Only it’s not North Carolina. The legendary director didn’t want to stray far from his Willow Creek ranch in Paso Robles so nearly the entire film was shot around his ranch and in various San Luis Obispo County locations including Morro Bay and Pismo Beach. Starring the luscious Jennifer Jones (who worked with Vidor on another melodrama, “Duel in the Sun”) and a young Charlton Heston, this potboiler cuts to heated action with startling energy. Jones demanded patience and gentleness on the set, Vidor once said, but he was “rewarded a hundred-fold with a sensitive and intriguing performance.” 1952 Drama. 82 min. USA. Sunday, March 18 12:00 p.m. Reception: Mogul passes & pre-purchased tickets only. 3 p.m. Movie: Park Cinemas, Paso Robles $15 General / $12 Students / All Festival Passes
