Email Print

When most people hear the name of maverick Hollywood film director Sam Peckinpah, they think of his western classic The Wild Bunch. But in the last years of his life, Peckinpah made two films which might surprise those of you (as it did me) who are familiar with the films’ titles, but never saw the films when they had their theatrical releases back in the late 1970s.

The anti-government Convoy.

The politically-incorrect Cross of Iron.
