Major Dundee (1965) Written and directed by Sam Peckinpah
Charlton Heston as Maj. Amos Charles Dundee and Richard Harris as Capt. Benjamin Tyreen
Dundee: You’re a would-be cavalier, an Irish potato farmer with a plumed hat fighting for a white-columned plantation house you never had and never will.
Tyreen: How exactly do you see yourself, Major Dundee? Have you ever stopped to think why they made you a jailer instead of a soldier?
