Region code 1 (USA)
Sam Peckinpah first big budget film was also the first to be taken away and released in a shortened version. But now, 40 years later, most of the missing footage has been located and restored, with the entire soundtrack remixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital, and a completely new score composed. The new scenes complete the electrifying depiction of an obsessive Union officer (Charlton Heston) who leads a squad of Rebel prisoners (Richard Harris), ex-slaves and criminals (James Coburn) into Mexico to hunt down a band of murdering Apaches - which raises the question: who represents the greater threat? Featuring one of the finest casts ever assembled for a Western, Major Dundee is an authentic American classic, at last presented as its legendary director intended!
Charlton Heston, Richard Harris, Jim Hutton, James Coburn
