    George Roy Hill directed some of the best films ever - anyone remember "The Sting?" - but this is, IMO, his best, even though he won the Oscar for "The Sting." What I love most about this film is the humor and the lighter moments thrown in to get you past some of the really heavy stuff. Of course, there IS Redford/Newman in as good a partnership as any on film. I can't imagine anyone trying to remake this glorious film!

    On my very first date, I took Joanne to this movie. Great choice!! She and I didn't last a year but this movie has stayed with me forever. I encouraged my favorite Aunt Ned to see it the next night; it became her favorite movie and "Raindrops" her favorite song (which they played it at her memorial service). There are so few 'perfect' movies. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is one of them and "It Happened One Night" and "Bringing Up Baby" are the others. The cinematography is breathtaking, the acting spot-on, the script is witty and touching, the score is classic. Never again will they make a movie this great. I never get tired of watching it.

    Great film . Fantastic cast. One of the best westerns ever made. This was the beginning of the Redford, Newman pairing. Legendary. My only complaint is the music . Times change and tastes in music change . This music sounds like it belongs in, say, a Peter Sellers ,Pink Panther movie or one of those screw ball comedies done in the 60s with an all star cast, except for the, Not Going Home, theme in Bolivia and the Scott Joplin style piano playing. Otherwise a classic movie. P.S. Katherine Ross was and still is so Beautiful.

    A masterfully made western. Newman & Redford's chemistry is pure magic, giving performances that would later foreshadow their amazing abilities in "The Sting." The story is great & the screen is filled with details that add to the amazement of this film. The song "Raindrops keep Falling on my Head" has become one of my favourite songs because of this film. I give it a 4.5/5.

    The best Western of all time is none other than a film that isn't really a Western but an extremely interesting character study film with an excellent script. The film is about Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), who runs the Hole in the Wall Gang, and the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), his right hand man, and how they must escape a group that is after them. Newman and Redford have never been better. The music score adds to the film's momentum and tone. George Roy Hill's direction is superb. The cinematography is top notch. Classic scenes include the 'I can't swim' sequence and the last scene from the film. However, the MVP of this film is the script, which includes several quotable lines. Kid, when I say let's go to Bolivia, let's go to a place like Bolivia.

  • Think you used enough dynamite there Butch?

    A classic in every sense of the word. This is one film that you cannot improve on. Paul Newman was already one of Hollywood's top stars when filming began. When the film was released, Robert Redford became a major star as a result of his role as the Sundance Kid. There is so much memorable dialogue that it is impossible to keep up. How many of us out ther can sing RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD at a moments notice? Quite a few of us could. Never a dull moment.Butch Cassidy and the Hole in the Wall gang are the most likeable western outlaws that you will ever see. They really don't mean to hurt anyone, and try their best not to. They like to rob banks and trains. It should be noted that railroad tycoons of the period that the film takes place were bigger crooks that Butch Cassidy could imagine being. But when things started to get uncomfortable, Butch, Sundance, and Etta (Katherine Ross) set sail for Bolivia where they resume their bank holdups. The film ends with Butch and Sundance being killed in a violent ambush. Or were they? Some people say no, it did not happen that way.

  • One of the greats adn great pairings of all time.

    This movie is so enjoyable. I don't care how many times I've seen it. I have also met Katherine Ross and her life didn't turn out the greatest but she did an excellent job in this movie. Truly a classic in my book (although I consider it a newer classic).
