Storyline

Major Dundee, During the last winter of the Civil War, cavalry officer Amos Dundee leads a contentious troop of Army regulars, Confederate prisoners and scouts on an expedition into Mexico to destroy a band of Apaches who have been raiding U.S. bases in Texas



The films of Sam Peckinpah: A flawed masterpiece.


A missing Gem from Peckinpah‘s crown

 
Why isn’t there a “director’s cut” of this movie in DVD format? It’s editing caused Sam to disown the finished cut. During production Charleton Heston charged Sam on horseback with saber drawn, quick boom work averted disaster. He also offered to forgo his salary to get it released. What an enigma. My appreciation is for the accurate depiction of historical details. Horse Cavalry at it’s best even to bugle calls. Pre-revisionist accurate depiction of Apache depredations. Maximillian’s French vs. Jauristas is also depicted without apology. The whole pathos of Confederate P.O.W.s who galvanized Yankee to serve on the frontier. Good drama with lots of action to keep the story rolling. “Bring it on…” history “in your face”. James Coburn’s cameo as one armed scout is worth the watch alone.
