Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid directed by George Roy Hill(1969)

 

Best 100 Movies of All Time Divider

       Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is based loosely on fact.  Whether fact or fiction this almost epic Western paired Robert Redford as Sundance with Paul Newman, Butch Cassidy.  No actors could ever replace them if anyone dared to produce a remake.  The movie also starred Katherine Ross as Butch's love interest.  The outstanding direction was by George Roy Hill.  The movie is essentially a buddy western about two outlaws of the wild west who go around robbing and running.  They eventually hop a ship in New York headed for Bolivia.   They are at home here robbing trains and mules laden with payroll money.  Unfortunately, they irk the wrong people and end up being riddled by Bolivian bullets.  The dialog is superb as is the writing and cinematography.  The music was no slouch either having won an academy award that year for best song Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head.
