The authentic death & contentious afterlife of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid : the untold story of Peckinpah's last Western film by Paul Seydor( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before Sam Peckinpah finished shooting his 1973 Western, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, there was open warfare between him and the studio. In this scrupulously researched new book Paul Seydor reconstructs the riveting history of a brilliant director fighting to preserve an artistic vision while wrestling with his own self-destructive demons. Meticulously comparing the film five extant versions, Seydor documents why none is definitive, including the 2005 Special Edition, for which he served as consultant. Viewing Peckinpah's last Western from a variety of fresh perspectives, Seydor establishes a nearly direct line from the book Garrett wrote after he killed Billy the Kid to Peckinpah's film ninety-one years later and shows how, even with directors as singular as this one, filmmaking is a collaborative medium. Art, business, history, genius, and ego all collide in this story of a great director navigating the treacherous waters of collaboration, compromise, and commerce to create a flawed but enduringly powerful masterpiece

Cobb by Ron Shelton( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in 1960, "Cobb," is a series of duets between two men. Tyrus Raymond "Ty" Cobb and Al Stump. "The Georgia Peach," while perhaps the greatest baseball player who ever lived, was also a racist, a wife-beater, and probably a killer. Stump was a sportswriter with the job of a lifetime--a biography with full access to the principal. Cobb envisions the book as his way of controlling how history sees him, a piece of self-serving, glorifying hogwash. Stump wants the real story, which Cobb (who's wrangled editorial approval) insists Stump cannot include. Stump writes the book Cobb wants, while secretly making notes for his own unvarnished biography. Stump published his version in 1994, and in keeping with its conclusions, the film dares to voice a truth most people regard as unwelcome: Sometimes greatness has nothing to do with goodness

The Killer elite by Sam Peckinpah( Visual )

2 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renegade director Sam Peckinpah's The Killer Elite offers a gorgeously San Francisco-based excursion into the dark world of contract assassins, the CIA, martial arts, and ever more obscure notions of honor among hit men, with James Caan and Robert Duvall the leading exemplars thereof. Shot by the terrific Philip Lathrop, co-edited by the exemplary Monte Hellman, and with music by sine qua non composer Jerry Fielding ... this is an echt-1970s film, crammed with anger, betrayal, and the occasional soupçon of heart-wrenching poetry." -- Container
