to virtially explode on the silver-screen of course in 1972's huge hit$ THE GETAWAY (***1/2) & the yr prior to that showed STEVE could be light , Gentle & funny in JUNIOR BONNOR (***1/2)

I tend to enjoy his T.V.  work as a screenwriter and \ or director in shows such as Gunsmoke,  Have Gun, Will Travel and The Riffleman.

Ride the High Country,  his second film,  is my favorite;   a very good later era western with two solid western actors in McCrea and Scott.

THANX FOR YOUR INPUT   something i did not know though & watch a couple episodes of tv's GUJSMOKE daily thesedays that SAM had anything to do with the longest running scripted series in tv history (l955-75)

 

When you say RIDE THE HIGH CUNTRY is yor#2 of his, what is #1st?

(TRIVIA: Dennis Quaid & then hitched Meg Ryan bought WARREN OATES ranch & it looks like WARREN just had his ashes thrown all over  the grounds, because back around 1988 Quaid was in the superb PREMIERE MAG & said he liked going for walks & whenever he picked up a bunch of sand, Dennis said it brought him closer to his late pal

Speaking of OATES have you seen the cult drive in picture from 1971 TWO-LANE BLACKTOP (***1/2)?

I think THE WILD BUNCH is a masterpiece; I like a few  other SAM PECKINPAH's films like :

MAJOR DUNDEE (1965)

STRAW DOGS (1971)

BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA (1974)

THE GETAWAY (1972) Though I don't think much of ALI MACGRAW as an actor...

I'm with ya on McGraw.  And Baldwin's remake is lacking, I think.  

I don't go nuts over Peckinpah, but a few movies he directed I thought were OK.  And too, he did some early TV work on the series COMBAT.

I've written about them before, but new eyes areal ways watching,etc

 

There is no video & such, but new shots pop out all-time time of JW & McQueen;s together-(obviously loaded) in the early '70

 

JUST PUNCH IN JOHN WAYNE & HIM TOGETHER & MANY B & W SHOTS SHOULD APPEAR

 

IRONICALY LOOKS TO BE ABOUT 1971

You've posted this clip before. You've also repeatedly called the Broderick Crawford character in Born Yesterday, who likes to knock a woman around, the "hero" of the movie. I find the behavior you approve of or even admire very disturbing. The fact that you associate the man who physically assaults a woman with Republicans and the woman who gets assaulted with liberals is also indicative of your thought patterns.

Sometimes I wonder if he is even capable of having thought patterns. 

Just to ensure clarity I was talking about Crawford's character in Born Yesterday;  yea,,,  that's the ticket!

STEVE got aspestos posioning back arund the early '50;s on yet another punishment detail

I'd heard of someone got aspestos poisoning, at a really cheap Olive Garden that was since shut down by the feds: 
Turned out that wasn't really crushed basil in the sauce.
