A Fistful of Tango is a comedic reimagining of the 1920 silent western film The Toll Gate. Pianist Justin Sherburn and violinist Leigh Mahoney of Montopolis will provide the live musical score, performing the traditional tango arrangements of Austin composer Glover Gill.

Comedians Mac Blake and Carlos LaRotta have rewritten the movie in the irreverent and absurdist style typical of Master Pancake Theater. Monica Caivano and Gustavo Simplis of Esquina Tango dance studio will perform during the screening.

The second in the trilogy of comedy westerns that began in 2020 with The Return of Draw Egan, A Fistful of Tango follows the protagonist, William Foxtrot, on a quest for tango, justice, and more tango. The original 1920 film, The Toll Gate, has been edited to support this new story, and the live score of traditional tangos provided by Sherburn and Mahoney is the culmination of 20 years of collaboration with composer and arranger Glover Johns Gill.
