Women on the Verge of a Torontoist Contest

Cinematheque Ontario begins its Pedro Almódovar programme, Almódovar Meets Hollywood’s Golden Age, tomorrow and they’ve been kind enough to give us two pairs of tickets to the opening night, a double feature of Nicholas Ray’s 1954 bizzaro-western Johnny Guitar and Almódovar’s Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, which pays homage to Johnny Guitar. The screenings begin at 6:30 p.m. at Jackman Hall, the AGO, 317 Dundas West, so if you can make it, to enter all you have to do is answer this simple question before 4 p.m. this Friday:
Somehow this season Cinematheque Ontario have managed to run two programmes featuring famous directing Pedros—Pedro Costa and Pedro Almódovar, and they didn’t combine the two asking cinema goers to “Vote for (the) Pedro (you like best).” We’re not going to ask that question, though. We simply ask: which of these Pedros did people genuinely vote into power?
Pedro I, a king of Portugal?
Pedro Aguirre Cerda, president of Chile from 1938-1941?
Or San Pedro, a town in Argentina?
The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered, and the answer was Pedro Aguirre Cerda, so you know!
