Major Dundee

Mangled by its producer, Sam Peckinpah's 1965 film keeps building to apocalyptic climaxes that never materialize—Peckinpah would have to wait until 1967's The Wild Bunch to get his ferocious vision on the screen. Charlton Heston is the cavalry officer assigned to eliminate Apache resistance; Peckinpah makes a fine, ironic use of his stentorian presence in what becomes a very grubby context. With Richard Harris, James Coburn, Jim Hutton, Warren Oates, Senta Berger, and Slim Pickens. 124 min.
