1 TLS (Typed Letter Signed) on the Wild Bunch, March 6, 1976

Item #025071

Typed on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, signed by Sam Peckinpah on March 6, 1976 from the Hotel Konigshorf where he was residing. The Wild Bunch was the first realistic violent film of the Old West. When the studio decided to screen it in Kansas City, the audience reacted violently, some were throwing up, others threatening the operator of the projector while Sam Peckinpaugh looked down with delight and said that he was ready to take on all comers himself if they burst into the booth. The studio issued instead a seriously cut version which made no sense but in this letter the fan wants to see the uncut version. Peckinpah here promises when he returns from Europe, he will be delighted to show the fan the real film (not the fan who claims to have seen the edited version 17 times). "Thanks you for your obvious support of the San Peckinpah Benevolent Fund. Every cent helps." A little damp staining to lower edge not affecting letter.

Price: $600.00
