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.

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!
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 !
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.
