    SAM PECKINPAH must have been hung over when he did this dud. What a waste of so much talent. The story is so disjointed and drags on way to long. The stellar cast, seem to drag there feet from one hot dusty scene to the next.

    Peckinpah in a gentler, (relatively) non violent mode, which is always worth seeing, if only as a welcome respite from the death haunted, Bloody Sam personae that the public never seemed to get enough of. Like his other foray into relaxed, non visceral storytelling, "Junior Bonner," this film didn't do well at the box office. Still, it's one of his better works, in my opinion, and Jason Robards' performance is said to come quite close to the director's true personality. And Stella Stevens, exuding sass, smarts and sexuality, is even better than Robards. It's the only great performance from a leading lady in a Peckinpah film. (Ida Lupino, who was excellent as the mom in "Junior Bonner," was a in a supporting role.) Give it a B 'cause it's kinda rambling and about thirty minutes too long.

    If ther is one star in Hollywood underappreciated and respected it is the glorious Stella Stevens. What a body of work: Nutty Professor, Silencers, and this film The Ballad of Cable Hogue. Stella Stevens was a Paramount star and that studio cast in Man Trap, Too Late Blues, and Girls Girls Girls and The Nutty Professor. Seguing to Columbia the star acted in films as diverse as Syanon and Roz Russell's Where Trouble Goes...Angels Follow playing a Nun! Stells Stevens whether playing a Tramp or a Nun, or in Comedic or Dramatic roles shone. The star noted her issues when said many confused her with another blonde star Connie Stevens. In her great career as a movie star Stella Stevens worked with Gene Hackman, Roz Russell, Jerry Lewis, Elvis Presley,Glenn Ford and in this film Jason Robards.Sam Peckinpah cast Ms. Stevens in this movie over the resistance of Warner Bros and gives the finest performance of her career noted for always fine work. WB did not know how to market this Peckinpah film and the film quickly disappeared. I would recommend all to try and catch it on cable.

  • Another great Peckinpah classic

    This is my second fave from Peckinpah seeing this for the first time on the heels of the wild bunch and the Getaway was a bit of a shocker especially after hearing for years what a violent director Sam Peckinpah was but now it is one of my top ten favorite films Stella Stevens is for sure the Ladiest Damn lady ever Robards and the rest of the small but amazing cast turn in very good performances in this gem that was never well received at the time of its release but as Peckinpah historians realize it has become reverred as one of his best as Sam lamented people always complain about the violence in my films but when I take it out nobody goe to see it He also was known to say this was his favorite of his films watch it and see why

    This a wonderful movie, underrated at the time,with an excellent story, acting and music. A gentle comedy and a love story too! Sam Peckinpah as master story teller. If you get a chance see it.
