Storyline

Butch and Sundance are the two leaders of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang. Butch is all ideas, Sundance is all action and skill. The west is becoming civilized, and when Butch and Sundance rob a train once too often, a special posse begins trailing them no matter where they run. Over rocks, through towns, across rivers, the group is always just behind them. When they finally escape through sheer luck, Butch has another idea, "Let's go to Bolivia". Based on the exploits of the historical characters. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

Watch for what may be an outtake intentionally used in a bank robbery montage for the sequences in Bolivia. Featured with only a Burt Bacharach score to accompany it, Etta (Katharine Ross and Sundance (Robert Redford) enter a bank where, immediately, an unctuous bank manager insists on taking them to the basement bank vault to demonstrate its security. He unlocks a cell containing a safe and opens it, whereupon, behind the manager's back, Etta hands Sundance a pistol. The manager is cornered and Etta raids the safe. The manager, his hands up, is locked in the cell, leading to some confusion concerning the keys which is the moment Redford decides to drop his gun into Ross' purse and suddenly walk off, causing her to break up with laughter.

Goofs

When the engine of the special train blows its whistle to signal the posse, the sound is that of a single-note whistle. But the close-up zoom shows that it is a six-chime whistle, which would make a radically different, lower-pitched sound. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Butch Cassidy: What happened to the old bank? It was beautiful.
Guard: People kept robbing it.
Butch Cassidy: Small price to pay for beauty.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: A post modern Western
18 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

George Roy Hill's funny Western is still modern and hasn't aged bad at all. Paul Newman is charming and charismatic, and Robert Redford is energetic. I don't know why some Western-fans doesn't like it because it is filled with powerful and spectacular gunfights, humor, friendship and beautiful pictures - which is the reasons why you watch Westerns, isn't it? I am fully aware of the fact that 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' was an unusual Western when it came. After this there were other attempts or experiments made like this but I don't think that they succeeded. 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' has also the rare ability to even smell, taste or feel classic when you watch it ... Robert Redford was never better than here.

Rating: 9 of 10.
