Twilight Time has detailed the Blu-ray edition of legendary writer-director Sam Peckinpah's Major Dundee, starring Charlton Heston, Richard Harris, Senta Berger, Jim Hutton and James Coburn. Limited to 3,000 copies, the 1965 Civil-War era classic is set for an April 15th release.
Major Dundee tells the brutal tale of an ill-fated Civil War-era cavalry expedition into Mexico, starring Charlton Heston as an obsessive, ambitious Union officer hot on the heels of a rogue Apache chief and his murderous band. Also starring Richard Harris as Dundee's old friend and Confederate adversary, Senta Berger as a potential love interest, James Coburn as a grizzled, one-armed scout, and members of the Peckinpah stock company, including Warren Oates, Ben Johnson, R.G. Armstrong, and L.Q. Jones. This two-disc set features the original 122-minute theatrical release of the film, plus the 136-minute 2005 extended version. Special features include:
Disc One: The Extended Version
Audio Commentary with Film Historians Nick Redman, Paul Seydor, Garner Simmons, and David Weddle
@ Danielle - If you're really so short of cash that you can't save $30 between announce date and release date then maybe you shouldn't be buying blu-rays to begin with. I have purchased two TT titles (the Flint films) and both are STILL available at screenarchives.
@ corpseart - TT are contractually limited to 3000 titles. Christine is being grossly oversold on the secondary market because people are paying that amount for it. No different from when the Criterion DVD of Salo was going for $300 years ago. If people are stupid enough to pay that, then that's their own fault. Eventually, someone else will re-release the title and those who still have copies they don't want to keep will have to drop their prices just to get rid of them. Supply and demand.
