Peckinpah. 5 Dec 2009.

While I was in Santa Fe – I was told this Sam Peckinpah story. The narrator said on one of Peckinpah’s later film sets – the cast and crew had been waiting for Peckinpah to show up to begin filming… One hour goes by… Then two… Then three… The phone rings and it’s Peckinpah. He told his AD that he wasn’t going to make it to the set that day to send everyone home. Peckinpah said that “his clothes were scattered all over the place. And he was in them.” Funny. Unless, you’re the producer.
