After making his first bonafide classic in Ride the High Country, director Sam Peckinpah took a step towards the epic with Major Dundee. The film would, in many ways, define the rest of his career both on screen and off, as the drama behind the camera matched the action in front of it. Charlton Heston stars as Major Amos Dundee, a vainglorious Union Cavalry officer, who mounts an expedition to hunt down Apache war chief Sierra Charriba. Building his own army of criminals, ex-slaves and Confederate POWs - among them one Captain Ben Tyreen (Richard Harris), whose intense former friendship with Dundee is tainted with a sense of betrayal on both sides - Dundee heads into Mexico, his eye fixed firmly on a last shot at greatness. Beautifully shot and with a stellar supporting cast including James Coburn, Warren Oates, and L.Q. Jones, Major Dundee remains a stunning achievement and an essential experience for anyone interested in the life and cinema of "Bloody Sam." The film is presented in its extended version, alongside a wealth of illuminating extras.

Press Quotes

Arrow Video's comprehensive new Blu-ray set is unquestionably the definitive home video release for the Major Dundee to date--it's highly recommended for film fans in general and Peckinpah fans in particular.

     —The Digital Bits

Major Dundee features both men at the height of their various brands of sexiness: Heston chiseled, stoic and in charge; Harris rakish, roguish and most of all Irish. If nothing else, appreciate Major Dundee for the reflection of Peckinpah in his lead

     —Paste Magazine

Likely the most gritty and realistic Western ever made

     —Alt Film Guide

If you want to see the missing link between John Wayne's squint and Clint Eastwood's sneer, look no further than Charlton Heston in Major Dundee

     —Entertainment Weekly

It's hard to imagine 'The Wild Bunch' having the depth and grace it did without Peckinpah having this experience to draw on, and for that masterful film alone we're grateful to have Major Dundee back among the living again

     —Los Angeles Times
