Meet Author, Susan Compo
Meet author, filmmaker & 
Sam Peckinpah historian, Paul Seydor
William Holden leads a band of aging robbers through the hard world of the Old West, pursued by former-friend-turned bounty-hunter Robert Ryan. The balletic violence and weary fatalism that Peckinpah brings to his vision of the American West is underscored by some of sweatiest, dirtiest, bloodiest performances from some of the toughest actors of all time. Ernest Borgnine, Ben Johnson and Warren Oates shoot, screw, drink, and ride their way through the film’s harsh landscape, while managing to imbue it with a sense of sublime poetry. This is a film about men who have outlived their time and cling to a code that will be discarded by future generations: stand by your friends, take what you can get, and don’t kill civilians...unless they get in the way.

Paul Seydor is a film professor at Chapman University and the editor of dozens of feature films including TURNER AND HOOCH, WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP, HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE and many more. 

He was also the Director and Editor of the Oscar Nominated documentary short film, THE WILD BUNCH: AN ALBUM IN MONTAGE.​
