Synopsis:
One of the most popular screen Western ever made, this Academy Award-winning classic blends adventur, romance and comedy to tell the true story of the West's most likeable outlaws. No-one is quicker then Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) when it comes to get rich quick schemes, and his sidekick Sundance (Robert Redford) is a wizard with a gun. When these two bungling bank and train robbers tire of running from the law, they set out for Bolivia with Sundance's girlfriend (Katherine Ross). Though they can barely speak enough Spanish to communicate: "This is a stick-up!", that's only a minor detail to the two nicest "bad-guys" who ever rode the West.

Timeless gem - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid review by JD

Spoiler Alert
30/09/2014

This is undoubtedly the best western ever made. If you haven't watched it recently it does not fade with age. If you have never watched it, this is how to make a western. It is about a gang of outlaws who rob from trains and banks. There are moments that rival "you're only supposed to blow the ******* doors off" with stunts that although straight forward beat any car pile up for thrill. The characters are marvelous and have a great dry humour. Newman and Redford never did anything better (and unfortunately quite a few things that were not so good). Arguably the best and most memorable ending of any film.
