Episode 109: Sam Peckinpah

No solo intro from yours truly since there is a whole lotta ground to cover. Supporting Characters host Bill Ackerman returns once again to talk about a controversial, almost mythological figure in film history, the one and only Sam Peckinpah.  We cover nearly his entire filmography from beginning to end touching on classics such as RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY, THE WILD BUNCH, PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID, but we do have very strong feelings about STRAW DOGS, BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA, and so much more!  Feel free to send me an email with your thoughts on Peckinpah and what you consider to be your favorites as well!
