The wild bunch by Sam Peckinpah( Visual )

19 editions published between 1969 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Au début du siècle, dans une petite ville du Sud du Texas proche de la frontière mexicaine, une bande de pillards s'apprête à attaquer les bureaux de la Compagnie des Chemins de Fer. Mais des chasseurs de prime veillent...l'affrontement dégénère et seuls cinq survivants parviennent à atteindre le Mexique, alors dévasté par une guerre civile. Le règlement de compte final n'en sera que plus brutal. Ce western signé Sam Peckinpah ("Pat Garret et Billy the Kid", "Coups de Feu dans la Sierra"), le cinéaste de la violence, éclate d'une formidable puissance. Peinture de l'agonie de l'Ouest, de ces hommes qui tuent pour rester libres, fresque sauvage, chant funèbre, voici une oeuvre dont la fascination vénéneuse doit beaucoup à la maîtrise de la mise en scène et à l'excellence de l'interprétation. William Holden, en chef des hors-la-loi, donne le meilleur de son talent ; tout comme Robert Ryan, chasseur de primes au regard triste et lointain. Restauré en 1994, le film bénéficie d'un transfert anamorphique superbe et offre une version longue inédite depuis sa sortie en salle en 1969." (source : jaquette)
