>Not to mention whitewashing McCoy's character.


If I remember correctly, in the first chapter of the book McCoy murders a bank guard in cold blood, and later he kills a man who has the bad fortune to have a car when McCoy needs one. And like many others, I didn't care for the "third Durango" ending.

One note about the film: Has anyone noticed that in the beginning of the movie, Peckinpah used sound for continuity while cutting back and forth between different visual images? Steven Soderbergh did the same thing throughout the whole movie with THE LIMEY.
