Major Dundee ★★½ 1965

A Union army officer (Heston) chases Apaches into Mexico with a motley collection of prisoner volunteers. Too long and flawed; would have been better had Peckinpah been allowed to finish the project. Excellent cast. 124m/C VHS, DVD . Charlton Heston, Richard Harris, James Coburn, Jim Hutton, Ben Johnson, Slim Pickens; D: Sam Peckinpah; C: Sam Leavitt.
