For fear of having deceived myself, have been rooting around. Some information (or speculation?), but nothing set in stone, may be found here, here, and here (although the relevant link in the first post is dead, alas).

Interesting and puts some flesh on the bones, but of course could be Chinese whispers.

I've held off buying the brilliant Junior Bonner, principally because the R2 was awful and the R1 AB release had no extras at all (and I think is OOP? We're back in Quatermass and The Pit territory ). It's coming out again, I believe, again sans extras; at least that's what I heard, but I can find no mention of it now, strangely. Anyone?

I struggle a little with The Ballad of Cable Hogue; but like a lot of films, maybe it will blossom when I finally see it in OAR.

I live in Holland and we don't have Channel 4, only BBC I & II .

But there's hope:

a Region 1 box set, devoted to Peckinpah, was in the pipeline from Warner, to include at least "High Country", "Garrett and Billy" and a new, two-disc special edition of "The Wild Bunch"
The sooner, the better.

Randolph Scott, one of the great unsung heroes of western genre.
Which brings up another question: will we ever see those great Budd Boetticher - Randolph Scott westerns on DVD?

I certainly hope so! We have the Anthony Mann / James Stewart movies (save for the best, The Naked Spur), so we have every reason to hope for the best.

None I'm afraid, though Peckinpah fans will rejoice at the upcoming The Osterman Weekend two-discer from Anchor Bay.
