Deadly Companions, The (Region 1) - Peckinpah, Sam
Releasedatum: 19 februari 2013
"Yellowleg (Brian Keith) escorts Kit Tilden (Maureen O'Hara) through hostile Apache territory to bury her son, who he accidentally shot while trying to stop a robbery. A couple of shady characters, Turk (Chill Wills) and Billy Keplinger (Steve Cochran), are recruited to ride along for reasons only Yellowleg knows. Director Sam Peckinpah s first feature, The Deadly Companions (1961) was shot in 21 days at Old Tucson Studios. Brian Keith had appeared in Peckinpah s TV series The Westerner, and had recently costarred with Maureen O Hara in The Parent Trap. Peckinpah was not allowed to rewrite the script or supervise the editing (it was produced by O Hara s brother), but his direction is assured, his strong visual stamp is already evident, and his typical themes front and center.
