Publisher's summary

Peckinpah: A Portrait in Montage (The Definitive Edition) is a comprehensive biography on the American filmmaker Sam Peckinpah, creator of such films as The Wild Bunch, Ride the High Country, Straw Dogs, and Junior Bonner. Written by Garner Simmons, whose relationship with Peckinpah began in 1973 and continued until the director’s death in December of 1984, the book is read by the gifted actor Jason Culp, son of the late Robert Culp. It examines Peckinpah’s genius, his conflicted life, and his controversial films in the words of those who knew him. Because Robert Culp and Sam Peckinpah had been friends since the mid-1950s, Jason grew up knowing the director.

Thus his ability to capture Peckinpah’s distinctive voice is uncannily accurate as are the voices of the more than 70 actors, writers, producers, collaborators, family, friends, and enemies, including Strother Martin, LQ Jones, RG Armstrong, William Holden, Charlton Heston, Ida Lupino, and many more. It concludes with the special bonus: “Remembering Sam - A Conversation Between Jason Culp and Author Garner Simmons”.
