The Gaucho (1927)
In this action film, Douglas Fairbanks plays the unofficial leader of Miracle City. Fairbanks laughs aloud at the faithful flock to the shrine of the Madonna: he knows that, once they've left, he can claim the pitiful alms they've left behind. Eventually, however, Fairbanks experiences a religious conversion.

... one of the best, most mature and most interesting films in his career.
