The Ballad of Cable Hogue (IB Tech Print!)

Sandwiched between The Wild Bunch & Straw Dogs in the director’s filmography, Sam Peckinpah’s The Ballad of Cable Hogue goes in an unexpected direction, eschewing violence in favor of humor to create a subtle, light-hearted & laid back tribute to the dying Old West. A pitch-perfect Jason Robards stars as a bedraggled prospector, betrayed & left for dead in the desert, whose luck turns around upon discovering water. There he’ll turn a simple spring into a thriving business with the help of a wandering preacher (David Warner) and a jovial prostitute (Stella Stevens), eagerly awaiting the day when his disloyal former partners (L.Q. Jones & Strother Martin) might stop by his watering hole.

“Sam Peckinpah’s The Ballad of Cable Hogue is a splendid example of the New Western. It’s also a fine movie, a wonderfully comic tale we didn’t quite expect from a director” – Roger Ebert

Ariel Schudson discusses The Ballad of Cable Hogue on the New Beverly blog.

From Noon Till Three

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Frank D. Gilroy directs a big screen adaptation of his offbeat western novel, casting real life husband & wife Charles Bronson & Jill Ireland in a romantic comedy that’ll keep you on the edge of your saddle! Following a passionate three hour tryst From Noon Till Three, a young widow (Ireland) spins a tall tale about the supposed deeds of her outlaw paramour (Bronson) into a lucrative book. But when her old flame returns to town, he’ll have a hard time living up to the legend that his lover has created.

From Noon Till Three is neither a conventionally comic Western nor a conventional comedy, and it certainly isn’t a conventional Bronson film. More than anything else, I suppose, it is an ebulliently cheerful satire of contemporary myth-making and celebrity, cast as a fable of the Old West.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“We don’t expect Bronson to make small talk, to be charming, to sweep a pretty woman off her feet – but that’s what he does in From Noon to Three. And he does it with a certain rugged grace.” – Roger Ebert
