The highlight of the special features on this disc is the commentary by historians/authors Nick Redman, Paul Seydor, Garner Simmons, and David Weddle (Side note: it was a little freaky the day after I listened to this that I started to listen to Ron Moore's podcasts for the first season of the new Battlestar Galactica and discover that Weddle was also a writer on that show!). The track is entertaining and provides the most cohesive document of the troubled production history of the film. New scenes are identified and the commentators are not above criticising certain elements and scenes (especially the romance aspect). They also share anecdotes about Peckinpah, his working methods, his relationship with Jerry Brussler, the producer and the studio and most importantly, how important this film would be in the lead up to his next film, the classic The Wild Bunch.
