[quote=“Chris_Casey, post:54, topic:358”]I imagine I have said this before somewhere on this forum; but, my favorite Peckinpah movie is actually RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY.
But, THE WILD BUNCH is right behind it…tied with PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID.
There is no denying the importance of THE WILD BUNCH to the history of cinema, though!
It is just that I find myself watching–or re-watching-- RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY with much more frequency.
As for the tie with PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID…I waffle back and forth as to which of the two I like best, so I figure I like them equally (even though I am aware of the flaws the PAT & BILLY film has).
Just my two cents, amigos y amigas![/quote]
Of course Ride the High Country is marvellous, but I have a soft spot for Peckinpah’s first western, The Deadly Companions, as well as for The Ballad of Cable Hogue.
I still can’t keep my mind up about Major Dundee
Worst Peckinpah : The Osterman Weekend - The sentence ‘The book was better’ sounds frightening when that book was written by Robert Ludlum. Rutger Hauer once said on Dutch television that it was an honour to work with Sam, but that he didn’t have the slightest idea what the film was about.
