* ExecutiveMeddling: Frequently a victim of it, as he made little effort to compromise with studio heads or producers. ''Film/MajorDundee'' and ''Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid'' are the most extreme, though by no means the only examples. ''Film/TheWildBunch'' was a notable aversion: he worked well with producer Phil Feldman, though he disagreed with Feldman's decision to cut several scenes from the film.



* MagnumOpusDissonance: He reportedly preferred ''The Ballad of Cable Hogue'' to his more famous (and violent) works like ''The Wild Bunch'' and ''Straw Dogs''.



* ProductionPosse: Warren Oates, Ben Johnson, Creator/JamesCoburn, Kris Kristofferson, Strother Martin, L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, John Davis Chandler, Creator/DavidWarner, Cassie Yates, Aurora Clavell to name the most frequently occurring. He also frequently worked with cinematographer Lucien Ballard and composer Jerry Fielding.

Added DiffLines:

He also worked in TV earlier in his career, contributing well-regarded episodes to ''Series/HaveGunWillTravel'' and ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}'', rewriting a rejected script from the latter to create ''Series/TheRifleman'', and later creating ''The Westerner''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWestern: Many, obviously, but perhaps notably, his film Westerns are almost exclusively set in the TwilightOfTheOldWest or the NewOldWest rather than the "classic" period.

* ''Film/MajorDundee'': A vicious {{Deconstruction}} of the Cavalry Vs. Indians formula crossed with MobyDick. A victim of extensive ExecutiveMeddling, it (and ''Film/TheCincinnatiKid'' from which he was fired) set the stage for Peckinpah's contentious relationships with producers and studio heads during the production of his later films.
