Almost as famous for the legendary excesses of his personal life
as for his films, Sam Peckinpah (1925-1984) cemented his reputation
as one of the great American directors with movies such as The Wild
Bunch and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Max Evans, one of
Peckinpah's best friends, experienced the director's mercurial
character and personal demons firsthand. In this enthralling memoir
we follow Evans and Peckinpah through conversations in bars, family
gatherings, binges on drugs and alcohol, struggles with film
producers and executives, and Peckinpah's abusive
behavior--sometimes directed at Evans himself.
Evans's stories--most previously unpublished--provide a uniquely
intimate look at Peckinpah, their famous friends (including Lee
Marvin, Brian Keith, Joel McCrea, and James Coburn), and the
business of Hollywood in the 1960s and 1970s.
