  1. I’d go to see these movies with friends; I don’t know if it was a “guy thing” but it seemed like it. Leone’s score continuously echoed in my head from the moment I first heard it. Not an Eastwood film but when Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch came out there must have been 15 of us who went to the theater on opening day. I think we got thrown out of that showing and had to return later to finish watching the movie!

  2. Your comment had me curiously looking Sam up and revealed gross inaccuracies in Peckinpah’s wiki. It states he was living in Montana from ’78 til his death in ’84. In 1980 when I was training as a postman in Malibu, I delivered his mail to him at his home in the “trailer homes” of Paradise Cove (Rockford Files). One day he came outside to get his mail and we talked, as my pop, rock and movie trivia-packed brain cut loose, I also delivered to his friend Kris Kristofferson (Billy) up in the Malibu hills. He invited me in to have a drink (alcohol) and there I was, married with an infant son, needing this job desperately and had to use the excuse of route time to beg off. I have always regretted that moment, but if caught drinking on the job while on probation/training could have ruined my life at that point.
    Also, just months before his death I was getting a haircut trim in Malibu (Bernie Safire’s) and he was next to me, we said “Hi” but I could see that he was not looking well. Point is, he was living in Malibu from ’80 til ’84, not Montana, altho he may have owned property there and that’s what wiki used for data.
    A lot of in-between-job actors and directors would invite me in to their homes once I regaled them with my knowledge and appreciation of even their most obscure roles/movies. Good times!

    • That is so cool! I would love to have met Sam. As for Kristofferson, well, I was a big fan ever since I first heard Sunday Morning Coming Down in ’71. I had a friend who worked at Jimmy Cagney’s estate in NY and unbelievably, he never met him!
