Our first choice for your mature date movie is all about US truckers and is based on a country song of the same title released by C W McCall in 1978. Starring Chris Kristofferson, Ali MacGraw and Ernest Borgnine, truckers form a mile-long convoy of lorries speeding across the expansive Arizona and New Mexico freeways. They are prompted to adopt this strategy when faced with a vendetta by an abusive sheriff. Crammed full of frenetic driving sequences and CB-radio slang, this exciting adventure is a white-knuckle ride!
Although this film was directed by one of its main stars, Marlon Brando, it is a worthy addition to the list because Peckinpah was an original screenwriter. Set in the Wild West, it tells the story of a bank robbery in Mexico in 1880 and stars Marlon Brando as Kid Rio and Karl Malden as Dad Longworth, while the story is centred on the heist’s violent aftermath. With sadistic sheriffs, doublecrossing and pistol fights aplenty, this is another terrific action movie that will have you and your mature partner rooted to the screen.
The Wild Bunch
An iconic action movie, this bloodthirsty Western is renowned as one of Peckinpah’s most impressive. It centres around ageing outlaws who plan one final robbery to set them up for retirement, set against a lawless American West that is rapidly disappearing. With an all-star cast including William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Edmond O’Brien and Robert Ryan, the film also became notorious for its slow-motion action capturing bloodthirsty shootouts, as well as a rousing musical soundtrack by Jerry Fielding.
Cross of Iron
Unusually for a film produced by an American studio, the main protagonists in this WW2 action movie are German soldiers serving on the Eastern Front. Starring James Coburn, Maximilian Schell, David Warner, and James Mason, the brutality of the winter war in Russia are vividly realised. As well as the gripping battle sequences, there are intricate character studies as the battle-hardened infantrymen covet the ultimate medal awarded to German soldiers. From the patronising Prussian officers (Schell) to the sergeant who stands up to his bullying (Coburn) this is so much more than just another war film. It will make you think about the decisions ordinary men often have to make in the face of extraordinary circumstances.
The Osterman Weekend
Peckinpah’s last film is worth a mention because it takes a sideways step from the familiar blood and guts action sequences of his earlier work. Here the focus is on the Cold War that developed between the USA and the USSR in the 1950s. With another all-star cast, including Dennis Hopper, Rutger Hauer, Craig T Nelson, and John Hurt, the action centres on a controversial TV journalist who finds himself at the centre of a cat-and-mouse game between the CIA and various Soviet agents. There are still enough adventurous sequences to recognise this is still definitely a Peckinpah feature!
