The Hunting Party (1971) Poster

Trivia

The first of three films that Candice Bergen made with Gene Hackman in the 70s, the others being the equally reviled The Domino Principle (1977) and the much more acclaimed Bite the Bullet (1975). Although they only share a handful of scenes in this film, Bergen is on record as saying she learned more about film acting from Hackman in their films together than from any other quarter.
