Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"On 'Dundee' they cut 80% of the violence out and made it [the violence] very attractive and exciting; but the really bloody, awful things that happen to men in war were cut out, which I thought was unforgivable...

Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 04/15/2005
"Heston acts with a caustic, contained fury -- honor teetering on obsession -- that bridges the square fervor of a classic Western with the nihilism of contempo-stare-down revenge."
Premiere - 10/01/2005
"[With] a Heston performance that's as multi-layered as anything he's ever done."

Product Description:

A U.S. Cavalry officer leads a makeshift army against bloodthirsty Apaches. Filmed entirely on location in Mexico.

Plot Synopsis:

Sam Peckinpah's dramatic tale of the west, and of revenge.
A group of men follow Major Dundee, a officer in the Union Cavalry, down to Mexico to recapture some children kidnapped by Apaches. Their mission proves violent from start to finish, and filled with unexpected danger and adventure.


Production Notes:

  • Charlton Heston gave up his salary in order to "ransom" this picture from the producer and give director Peckinpah control over the final product.
    In spite of this, the producer chose to cut over an hour from the original film.
  • Shot in Eastmancolor by Pathe and Panavision, on location in Mexico.
  • Additional cast: Begonia Palacios (Linda); Albert Carrier (Captain Jacques Tremaine); Aurora Clavell; and Jose Carlos Ruiz (Riago).
  • Additional credits: August Lohman (special effects); Larry Butterworth (makeup artist); Tom Dawnson (costumes).
  • "Major Dundee March" sung by Mitch Miller's Sing Along Gang.
  • "Laura Lee" composed by Liam Sullivan and Forrest Wood.
