Someday two no-account desert rats – who long ago robbed Hogue and left him to die in the baking Arizona sand – will drop by for a drink. I much prefer this "Sam" even tho I think "Wild Bunch" and "Major Dundee" are two of the finest westerns around. 3 / 5 stars 81% 93%. Love the scene where they are in a hole and Jason Robards throws Rattlers into it! Directed by Sam Peckinpah. Very pleased with this set. Like the "Bunch" this mourns the passing of the west and is almost allegorical. Thanks. Coming in at nearly 2 hours I was never bored, as Peckinpah fills the screen with vast desert images, great character actors, most from his "stock" company - the unique Strother Martin and L Q jones as the only bad guys in the story, R G Armstrong, Slim Pickens (wasted as the friendly Stage Coach driver), Peter Whitney and of course David Warner for that extra touch of sex mad craziness. Ballad of Cable Hogue is a 1970 Western that follows the story of a lost cowboy trying to make it through life. If Peckinpah was capable of making a light hearted film then this is the one. This is the man who hated George Bassman's wonderful Ride the High Country score but wrote Jerry Fielding the most scathing, hurtful, horrifying letter about that score - and boy was he wrong and I don't know that he ever admitted that to Fielding. Jones and Strother Martin as Hogue’s old enemies. A Great Bargain. I mean seriously, we get your childish attempt at allegory. I originally wanted "The Ballad of Cable Hogue", which I knew was a very good film, in spite of being directed by Peckinpah - a man who traded on violence to sell his pictures - didn't he? Always liked this western and there is a great performance from one of my favourite western character actors, Strother Martin. A hobo accidentally stumbles onto a water spring, and creates a profitable way station in the middle of the desert. And about eighty percent of Cable Hogue works really well. It is in just the right spot for a much needed rest stop on the local stagecoach line, and Hogue uses this to his advantage. ENTER CITY, STATE OR ZIP CODE GO. I mean seriously, we get your childish attempt at allegory. One of our family's favorite movies for many years, yet I've never once met anybody who's even heard of it!! The Goldsmith score is a real let-down and nowhere near his great western scores, but I'm guessing Peckinpah got what he wanted. DVD from WARNER, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 25, 2019, Coming just after "The Wild Bunch" and before "Straw Dogs" this film shows Peckinpah can do gentler, more character driven tales. Hogue turns the water hole, felicitously located near a stagecoach route, into a thriving business, creating a rest stop for a never-ending series of parched travelers.

Jason Robards (wonderful) is Cable who discovers water halfway between 2 towns 40 miles apart and as he now has the only water around he determines to make some money and win the love of Stella Stevens, giving a lovely, warm performence, proving she can act, be sexy and vulnerable - one of, in my opinion, her best performences. Not for everyone perhaps, but a must for western, and just good film, lovers.

The Goldsmith score is a real let-down and nowhere near his great western scores, but I'm guessing Peckinpah got what he wanted. After all, "Ride the High Country" was just a vehicle for those ageing '50s diehards Scott and McCrae to retire on, "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" I'd seen on telly and it was a mess, and "The Wild Bunch" was just gratuitous violence - everyone knew that - moreover, I'd seen that on telly too and it was also a disjointed mess.
