Read Paul Logan's film review of Convoy

This 35th Uncut Special Edition comes with a slightly improved picture since the last release, but still appears quite grainy. The extras include Passion & Poetry – Sam’s Trucker Movie, an hour long documentary with all of the surviving cast and crew members who look back at the troubled production. It's a fantastic addition as most of the contributors are open and honest about the problems.

There is also Promoting Convoy which has stills of alternative poster designs for the film, Three Lost Scenes, three deleted scenes with excerpts from the script displayed on screen, as well as stills from the scenes, In-Jokes, Friends, Cameos, references to other films and cameos for his friends and crew, US Radio Spots, TV Spot, Trailer and More Production Stills and Trucker Notes from Norway, a short piece on the trucking company who purchased the original truck from the movie. These extras are well worth watching for any Sam Peckinpah or just film enthusiasts in general.
