Product description

SYNOPSIS:It's 1908. The West has chnged. Grizzled frontiersma Cable Hogue (Jason Robards) hasn't. Despite the fortune he's made selling water to thirsty desert travelers, he lies in wait. Someday two no-account desert rats - who ago robbed Hogue and left him to die in the baking Arizona sand - will drop by for a drink. After the violence of "The Wild Bunch", director Sam Peckinpah shifted moods with this memorable fable, less a tale of revenge than it is a lyrical, touching tribute to the last days of the West's pioneering spirit. Stella Stevens and David Warner lead an excellent supporting cast that also includes L.Q. Jones and Strother Martin as Hogue's old enemies. ABOUT THE DVD: The film is presented in COLOUR and in WIDESCREEN format (1.78:1 ratio) and runs for a total of 116 minutes. AUDIO languages on the disc are the original ENGLISH along with dubbed French and Italian audiotracks - SUBTITLES on the disc are in English, French, Italian, Dutch, Arabic and Bulgarian (there are also English and Italian subtitles for the hard-of-hearing too) - SPECIAL FEATURES include a commentary by Sam Peckinpah's biograpers - a new featurette 'The Ladiest Damn'd Lady: An Afternoon With Actress Stella Stevens' and a Same Peckinpah trailer gallery.

Collection of the finest Sam Peckinpahs Westerns which includes the Best Western ever made The Wild Bunch (which I also have in Blu-ray) plus the fantastic Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid which has Bob Dylans Knocking On Heavens Door overlaid on a scene after a shoot out perfect song for the scene (Still No Blu-ray of this Movie Come on MGM get it out there) plus two other Sam Westerns Ride The High Country (released in the UK cinema as Guns In The Afternoon stupid title) and The Ballad Of Cable Hogue all well worth having if you are a Peckinpah fan MJP

I originally saw this film YEARS ago. I loved it - great story, fantastic music - Butterfly Morning is a song I find myself humming randomly from time to time, a great cast what more do you need. I taped it on VHS when I eventually saw it on again but the adverts were annoying. Ever since DVD has been affordable (yes I have really been looking that long) I have periodically been searching for it. I got excited a few years ago only to find it wasn't suitable for British DVD players, then they brought out a Sam Pekinpah box set with it on but I didn't want the rest of the films.

Finally, today - thank you Amazon - ordered and can't wait for it to arrive!

If you like a mild western with comedy and tragedy, buy this film!

...it's great; best western movies ever, from director Sam Peckinpah in one box. Includes: 2 Disc Special Editions of "The Wild Bunch" and "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid"( which has two versions) and single disc editions of "The Ballad of Cable Hogue" and "Ride the High Country." Box set is filled with good extras ( such as documentaries, featurettes, trailers and audio commentaries for each movie); there is something on each disc to explore. Buy!!!!

A great selection of four films from a director with a very real and genuine talent.
The transfer too on these particular DVD's is quite remarkable, almost hard to believe that such results are possible.
The box set is six discs in four standard sized DVD cases in a nice glossy sleeve.
At the amazingly low price Amazon are selling this item for i simply couldn't be any more pleased.
Class, real class !

Wow this is a great price for some of the best Westerns made, Sam Peckinpah was a geat Director & this Boxset is Proof of that, Ride The High Country is 1 of the best Old Westerns with 2 great turns form Scott & McCrea. The Wild Bunch, so much as been said about film dont know what to say, just the BEST Western ever! The Ballard Of Cable Hogue is lovely little unseen {shame} film with a nice little turn from Jason Robards and a change of mood for Peckinpah. Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid is James Coburns best film & a real Gem for fans, with the 2 versions of the film, the new 1 with the missing Garrett/wife home scene & a few cuts here & there, Im still very glad that you have the Turner Preview as well, i think its just a little better. All in all NO Western fan should be without this Set

Format: DVD
Although Cross of Iron is my favourite Peckinpah movie none of these disappoint. From Ride the High Country through to Pat Garrett and Bily the Kid Peckinpah stamps his own distinctive mark on the western genre.

The themes that runs through Ride the High Country are present in The Wild Bunch and for that matter in Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia as well. Take the classic wedding sequence in RTHC. Elsa has runaway to spite her father and commits to marrying Billy Hammond. Hammond it turns out is one five brothers who are borderline nutcases, reminding me vaguely of a 'Hills have Eyes' like group. So a squalid group of brothers whose attitude to women is, well, backward. Elsa is torn between backing out of the wedding, because she realises the nature of the men, but she is either too scared or still wants to spite her father. This theme of squalidness is ever an present theme in Peckinpahs movies. Fortunately for Elsa there is another way out.

The Wild Bunch takes another theme used in RTHK; that of aging cowboys who want to make one last stand for what they believe to be right in the dying west. There are some marvellous set pieces in this film, noteably two epic gunfights. The boxed set has two editions of the film, both of which attempt to restore the film to Peckinpah's original vision. This is a film which improves with every viewing.

Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid and The Ballad of Cable Hogue are both quality films as well. Only time prevents me from writing another couple of paragraphs on these as well.

Overall a great boxed set, with many interesting extras as well.
