Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Directed by George Roy Hill • 1969 • United States
Starring Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katharine Ross
The rapport between Paul Newman and Robert Redford propels this classic western, loosely based on the story of real-life outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy (Newman), and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the Sundance Kid (Redford). Through a rollicking blend of humor and action, the film follows the train-robbing pair as they go on the run from a posse in hopes of making it to Bolivia, their escapades punctuated by Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s Oscar-winning theme song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head.”
