This chapter is devoted to survey the process of adapting and shooting Juan Moreira, one of the most popular accounts about an outlaw gaucho who ends up defeated by the forces of civilization and progress. I discuss the challenges faced by its director, Leonardo Favio, and the popular success the film received, relying on press releases and film reviews of 1973.
