4 stars out of 5 -- [The film] should be cherished for its stars' chemistry, 27-minute chase sequence, climactic shootout, freeze-frame-and-pull-out final shot, warm photography and fresh take on a weary theme...

You have to admire the craft and assurance of the thing even as its artificiality hits you in the face. Full Review

The film is a raffish, good humored ballad with Butch and Sundance as a pair of lovable rogues -- a Bonnie and Clyde to a ragtime beat. Full Review

The John Foreman production is episodic, but George Roy Hill's direction is so satisfying in catching the full value of the Goldman screenplay that a high degree of interest is sustained. Full Review

Product Description:

This 1969 Western encapsulates the genre, with dramatic chase scenes on horseback through breathtaking landscapes, daring robberies of banks and trains, true comradery between cowboys who would risk their lives for one another, and copious amounts of renegade charm. Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) is the smart, savvy leader of The Hole in the Wall Gang, and his sidekick the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) ranks among the best shooters the West has known. This combination of brains and menace allows the duo to roam unchallenged, staging petty robberies when needed and otherwise kicking back at the local brothel. But when a six-pack of the best cowboys in nearby states gather to bring down the rebels, using a Native American tracker to follow them across rivers, over mountains, and through deserts; Butch and Sundance decide to flee. Gathering Sundance's girlfriend (Katherine Ross), they make their way to Bolivia via New York City. Unfortunately, old habits die hard, and before they know it, the charismatic criminals find themselves in an all-too-familiar situation, this time facing South American enemies.

Directed by George Roy Hill, BUTCH CASSIDY's balance of drama, action, and humor is a winning combination on its own. But this excellent tale of friendship and adventure is most successful for its talented leads, who fill every scene with wit, skill, and machismo. A broad color palette showcases glorious sunsets and peaceful rivers running through the craggy Rocky Mountains, while brief interludes of black and white still shots inject artistic flair. In every sense a classic, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID is simply timeless.


Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: September 23, 1969.
  • Shooting locations: Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Mexico.
  • Paul Newman initially turned down the film, uncertain about his ability to do comedy.
    Warren Beatty originally accepted the role of Sundance, but Newman, who also functioned as a producer, refused to okay him. Director George Roy Hill proposed Redford, and Newman accepted.
  • BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID is number 50 on the American Film Institute's list of America's 100 Greatest Movies.
  • The film is based loosely on real-life Western outlaws Robert Leroy Parker and Harry Longbaugh.
  • The film features the hit "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
  • The film was followed in 1979 by BUTCH AND SUNDANCE: THE EARLY DAYS, directed by Richard Lester and written by Allan Burns. Tom Berenger and William Katt substitute for Newman and Redford in this prequel, which purports to detail the early exploits of the outlaw duo.
