Les Orgueilleux

Les Orgueilleux (The Proud and the Beautiful) is a 1953 drama film directed by Yves Allégret. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Story (the nomination officially went to Jean-Paul Sartre) but lost to Dalton Trumbo (under the pseudonym Robert Rich) for The Brave One.

Many large cowboy hats feature in the small Mexican village where joy and misery, hope and pain, passion and guilt, love and decay, life and death are mixed in the peasants life and two French citizens who end up stranded in there, during a typhoid epidemic, but also a small boy with a beautiful Basque beret.
