PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID
DIRECTOR: SAM PECKINPAH
CAST: JAMES COBURN, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, RICHARD JAECKEL, BOB DYLAN
“Times change. Not me.” Kris Kristofferson’s Billy is speaking for director Peckinpah, whose rich, elegiac final western is the sum total of everything he’d ever thought or felt as an artist. James Coburn leads the posse on the trail of Billy and his gang, whose ranks include Nobel laureate Bob Dylan, contributing “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” to the soundtrack, playing over the final moments of gutshot Slim Pickens, one of the scenes of purest poetry in all of American pictures.
