You can also pre-order the DVD set from my website www.eldorado-film.de:

http://www.eldorado-film.de/bestellformular.htm

I'll include free Peckinpah postcards & rare behind the scenes stills with the ordered DVD of the first 200 buyers.
Price for the 2 - disc Special Edition is €17,99.- plus shipping (Europe €3,00.- / Worldwide €6,00.-)

I'll save the pre-orders and will send you an invoice the day the DVD arrives here ready for shipping (3 - 5 weeks)

Has anyone else got this yet? I got it at the weekend & its outstanding. The wealth of stills, archive footage, interviews and so much more are incredible. HIGHLY recommended. An absolute MUST for Peckinpah fans, and all lovers of Cinema for that matter. Its great that Sam and his work are (at last) getting the recognition and respect and acclaim they deserved to get while he was still around. Fantastic stuff!!



If only Seydor hadn't ********* up Pat Garrett:-(

Seriously, has anyone got this yet? This is a truly magnificent set. One of the greatest docs on any artist ever made. Magnificent actually seems an inadequate word to use to describe it, its so good. This is solid gold, a treasure to be watched and enjoyed again and again (and again!). The supplements on disc 2 are every bit as good as the main feature. Truly astonishing, and a definite contender for DVD set of the year/decade/century even!!! I just cannot recommend this highly enough.

Don't let the fact that its a German release put anyone off, EVERYTHING in the entire set is in English apart from the text on the back of the box.

Bought this other week and watch it ALL this weekend. Top top documentary!!!

All Peckinpah fans just check this out! It's clearly been a labour of love for Mike, excellent work.

Only niggle would be that it wasn't anamorphic but picture quality is a moot point with essentially a "talking heads" documentary.

Highly recommended.

Passion and Poetry: The Ballad of Sam Peckinpah

Just in case any of you Peckinpah fans are interested (and if you don't already have it!), Mike Siegel's magnificent (and hard to find) documentary on ol' Sam is now available on Amazon.de for only EUR14.99. I've said it before, for fans of Peckinpah (and good Cinema) it really doesn't get any more essential than this documentary. Do not let the fact that it is a German release put anyone off, the entire thing is in English. The only German in the set is the text on the back of the DVD case.

Here:- Amazon Germany

I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much from the blu of Cross of Iron as I'd seen it in HD on ITV a while ago, but the blu looks much better. Gone straight to the top of my wants list.

I ******* love Cross of Iron.

Dear Blu-ray experts,

I'm looking for a pardner to place my blu-ray/DVD supplements worldwide regarding films by Sam Peckinpah. I just finished bonus material for the upcoming french KILLER ELITE blu-ray / DVD special edition, but I had learned about that project mainly by sheer luck just four weeks before the deadline. I'm not really following or investigating upcoming Peckinpah releases, being tied up in all sorts of different projects not related to homevideo.

Hence I need someone (or more than one person) who is good at finding out very early about upcoming Peckinpah releases so we could offer possible new or already produced documentaries & featurettes etc. to the involved companies around the globe. I already missed the STRAW DOGS, GARCIA blu-rays, I could have done some nice additional supplements. Just think about the CROSS OF IRON blu-ray, it easily could have become a release without any supplements at all, if someone attached to the label here in Germany would not have rembered an old e-mail of mine.

There must be some persons around who are good at being 'up to date'. In any case, to discuss this matter any further, just forward me a message!

Mike
