Kris Kristofferson on Sam Pekinpah: "One of the best descriptions i ever read of Sam, some guy said that 'he looked like a man that was stalking an animal much larger than himself'. That's the way Sam appeared to me. And I think that animal was violence."

Warren Oates on Sam Pekinpah: "Sam has always believed, and I believe rightly, that he is there to make the film and that anyone who stands in his way is dead. They're in deep, deep trouble. And anyone who doesn't come up to snuff and do their job absolutely perfectly is in deep trouble with Sam."
"I don't think he's (Sam Peckinpah) a horrible maniac; it's just that he injures your innocence, and you get pissed off about it."
