Other films of his include his "semi-westerns", The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970) and Peckinpah's personal favorite Junior Bonner (1972). Peckinpah both loved and loathed the legend he was becoming in Hollywood. He had many fights with his producers. His most memorable fight was with producer Phil Feldman over the final cut to Wild Bunch. Known for his use of slow-motion violence and sleazy characters, Peckinpah's anti-westerns set the stage for films like Unforgiven to come along. His last film, The Osterman Weekend (1983), was a career disappointment for Peckinpah. Less than a year later, on December 28, 1984, he died in Inglewood, California, leaving behind a huge legacy, that has been almost unsurpassed.
