This is the now famous (and fabulous) entrance of the "Wild Bunch" into a quiet southwestern border town. Peckinpah's use of the black & white titles, via intercuts and freeze frames, are just so elegant. It is a truly effective sequence with the clear message that these are very serious, violent people encased on the screen. Any illusion to the contrary is surely ended when director's title credit comes across on Pike Bishop's (William Holden) order:

"If they move, kill'em!"
