Savage Pampas (Spanish : Pampa bárbara) is a 1945 Argentine historical film directed by Lucas Demare and Hugo Fregonese and starring Francisco Petrone, Luisa Vehil and Domingo Sapelli. [1] The film's sets were designed by Germán Gelpi. The film is set in the nineteenth century in the Dry Pampas, when it represented a frontier between Argentinian-controlled territory and areas still largely inhabited by Indians before the Conquest of the Desert extended Argentine control southwards. In 1966, Fregonese remade the film in English under the same title.



A tough captain of the Argentine Army doggedly battles a band of outlaws composed of a mixture of Indians and Argentine deserters.
