'Wild Bunch' at Film Forum

January 07, 1996

The Baltimore Film Forum will close out its 27-year history Friday with a screening of a restored print of Sam Peckinpah's classic 1969 western "The Wild Bunch." The screening is at 7:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

"The Wild Bunch," starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine, follows a group of aging American gunmen into the violent Mexico of 1913, where they become involved with a corrupt general. It climaxes in a shoot-out photographed in slow-motion that remains one of the most controversial movie sequences of all time. The film was re-released in 1995 by Warner Bros., to critical acclaim.

The Sun's film critic Stephen Hunter will introduce the movie. Admission, which goes to defray the forum's debt, is $4 for members, $5 for nonmembers. Information: (410) 669-1986.
