Arthur Lindley's reference reminds me of a film that I saw years ago
that I have been trying to find every since, without success. If anyone
on SHAKSPER has a suggestion of where I might locate it I would be so
grateful. It was made in the late 60s by a French crew working with the
gypsies of Barcelona. It was a retelling of Romeo and Juliet, named Los
Torrantos y Los _______ (the second name I don't recall, but it is
usually shortened to Los Torrantos anyway), as in The Montagues and the
Capulets. It featured the great gypsy dancer, Carmen Amaya. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.
