Don't know if it was it's debut or not, but got to see the very good (***1/2) TCM docu PECKINPAH'S SUITE last evening, who else did & your thoughts please?

 

TRIVIA: His own favorite was PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID

I thought perhaps it was about something else and no connection to the film director, who incidentally, was never a favorite of mine. So I opted for a LAW AND ORDER rerun on WE.  ;)

& of course directly after the special was his own favorite 1973's PAT GARRET & BILLY THE KID

 

Sadly his last was mediocre (**) OSTMAN WEEKEND with Rutger Haur though

I watched it, spence. Well, about 3/4's of it anyway. Missed the first 1/4.

Thought it was well done, but of course was more about Sam's personal and family life than it really was his films.

It's really dirty. Gross stains on the carpet, tables and chairs overturned, cig burns on the kitchen table,

a pile of dirty dishes in the sink. It's like some old drunk lived there.

Ya know, CigarJoe lived in Montana for a while. Wonder if he could verify the condition of that room you found it to be in, Vautrin? 

(...just in case I ever again venture through that state and need a room for the night, you understand)

No lie. I'm a straight shooter, just like Sam was. One more thing--wear a good solid pair of shoes

because the floor is covered with so many broken whiskey bottles it looks like someone was

running a mini-distillery in there. I doubt I'll ever get to Montana. The sky around here is big

enough.

I didn't watch the show. I just couldn't resist a pun on the word suite, though I tried for a while.

I'm most familiar with Peckinpah's work from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Pretty good, though

sometimes it goes a bit overboard. I guess my favorite Peckinpah film is The Getaway.
