Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Description

Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the buddy film with this western classic.

With the law on their trail, the two pack their guns, and, along with Sundance's girlfriend (Katharine Ross), head for Bolivia, away from the men trying to bring them to justice – and death.

The show was about a group of young people who were members of a band, the Sundance Kids. They had a lot of fans, had records, signed autographs, etc. But the band was just a cover. Actually, the Sundance Kids were undercover members of the CIA. They posed as a band to lift suspicion off of them while they solved the cases assigned to them. They got their assignments from their 'manager' a branch of the CIA posing as The World Wide Talent Agency. The head of it was the manager, a huge computer called Mr. Socrates, who looked and sounded like HAL from '2001, A Space Oddessy', and who would contact the Sundance Kids va Butch's radio ring whenever he had an assignment for them. He would line up a gig for them so no one would wonder why musicians were there while they solved the case. There was at least one song in every episode.

    This Western movie has a superb Newman-Redford portrayal of gunslinging outlaws in their title roles. I remember watching this movie on TV when I was younger. And I remember hearing the song "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" sung by B.J. Thomas during the Butch and Mary bicycle riding scene in this movie. What a great song.
  • Part of a great date night

    I have set up a date night with my girlfriend to watch this movie. She has not seen many westerns, but this movie is so good that I know that she will love it! Anyone that has yet to see this should stop what they're doing and watch it now! Seriously, the only thing that I love more than this movie is you, Allie!

    I can honestly say this is my favorite movie of all time. Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and George Roy Hill were just a match made in Heaven. This movie is a true classic, and if you like this one, you should really check out The Sting: which was also Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and George Roy Hill.
  • Chef d'oeuvre

    This movie is one of the greatest movies that has been made. Even if you aren't a movie buff and don't usually watch older films, you will definitely enjoy this. The chemistry created between Paul Newman and Robert Redford and the way they sell their characters is top notch, and George Roy Hill uses it to his advantage to create a cinematic masterpiece. This movie is definitely worth the buy, you won't regret it!
  • One of Hollywood's best ever...
