Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is a 1974 is a crime film by Sam Peckinpah. It stars Warren Oates as Bennie, a loser piano player who is offered $10,000 to bring the head of the man who impregnated a powerful Mexican landowner’s daughter. His journey to dig up and decapitate the titular Alfredo Garcia only result in tragedy which leads to a deadly shootout at the landowner’s home.

Critics initially panned the film (some even saying it was one of the worst films ever made), but it has made a resurgence along with Peckinpah’s other films as of late. It, along with Cross of Iron are considered to be the director’s last truly great films.
