Excellent short docu. for those who love this movie.
25 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

When I saw this film, it had already won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short. It was shown in San Francisco along with a big screen showing of the film, "The Wild Bunch". Remember that this movie was criticized by the late, great John Wayne in one of his now famous Playboy Interviews. But in hindsight, from the era he was in, you can understand why. The movie completely un-romanticized the current way that westerns were; and wrote another way of romantically debunking the whole western myth with the ultimate consequences of choosing a violent life.

Sam Peckenpah's daughter is such a key ingredient to this documentary as she conveys how her father's character and qualities were brought through many time's in the acting of the late William Holden. There is also Ernest Borginine giving some reflections. And the behind-the-scenes story of the late Sam Peckenpah handling these fine actors adds to the appreciation and accomplishment of what I think is an genuine American classic.
