On the 50th Anniversary of The Wild Bunch, the Gerald Peters Gallery is pleased to host author W.K. Stratton, who will discuss and sign his new book, THE WILD BUNCH: Sam Peckinpah, a Revolution in Hollywood, and the Making of a Legendary Film.

Sam Peckinpah's film is the story of a gang of outlaws that is one big steal from retirement. When their attempted border bank robbery goes awry, the outlaws flee to Mexico and fall in with a brutal general of the Mexican Revolution, who offers them the heist of a lifetime. Conceived by a stuntman, directed by a blacklisted director, and shot in the sand and heat of the Mexican desert, the movie seemed doomed. Instead, it became an instant classic with a dark, violent take on the Western movie tradition.

W.K. Stratton tells the fascinating history of the making of the movie and documents for the first time the extraordinary contribution of Mexican and Mexican-American actors and crew
members to the movie's success. Shaped by infamous director Sam Peckinpah, and starring such legendary actors as William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Edmond O'Brien, and Robert Ryan, the movie was also the product of an industry and a nation in transition. In 1969,
The Wild Bunch spoke to America in its moment, when war and senseless violence seemed to define both domestic and international life.

About the author: W.K. Stratton is the author of five books of nonfiction and three books of poetry. He has written for Sports Illustrated, Outside, GQ, and Texas Monthly, and was named a Fellow of the Texas Institute of Letters in 2017. He is a longtime resident of Austin, Texas.
