Paul Seydor is an Oscar-nominated film editor and a professor in the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University in California, USA. He is the author of Peckinpah: The Western Films - A Reconsideration (1997).
"This exceptional and engrossing book explores the genesis of a particular film while describing the turmoil in film production that we like to call "collaboration." I cannot call to mind another book that is so illuminating on the great variety of pressures on a film idea that begins in the writing and the shooting, but may climax in the internecine warfare that carries the footage to the screen. In addition, we get a rich portrait--as good as has been achieved--of Peckinpah, the unruly genius who made many enemies but reserved first place on that team for himself." --David Thomson
