Opening with a silent "movie" of Butch Cassidy's Hole in the Wall Gang, George Roy Hill's comically elegiac Western chronicles the mostly true tale of the outlaws' last months. Witty pals Butch (Paul Newman) and Sundance (Robert Redford) join the Gang in successfully robbing yet another train with their trademark non-lethal style. After the pair rests at the home of Sundance's schoolmarm girlfriend, Etta (Katharine Ross), the Gang robs the same train, but this time, the railroad boss has hired the best trackers in the business to foil the crime. After being tailed over rocks and a river gorge by guys that they can barely identify save for a white hat, Butch and Sundance decide that maybe it's time to try their luck in Bolivia. Taking Etta with them, they live high on ill-gotten Bolivian gains, but Etta leaves after their white-hatted nemesis portentously arrives. Their luck running out, Butch and Sundance are soon holed up in a barn surrounded by scores of Bolivian soldiers who are waiting for the pair to make one last run for it. ~ Lucia Bozzola, All Movie Guide

definite classic from george roy hill.. by psychodrama311 June 15, 2003 - 12:48 AM PDT

it's funny how the director get's lost in 98 percent of the movies made. although newman and redford are the classic features in this movie. mr hill's direction and risk taking are what makes this movie roll. such as the still frame sequence.. newman riding the bicycle.. and of course the ending sequence. simply brilliant. newman is perfect as the almost humorous outlaw butch cassidy.. with all the great idea's.. and almost no chance of completing one of them.. and redford is perfect as the sundance kid. quiet. stoic. and completely behind butch.. on every crazy idea his comes up with. a classic that every film director should be forced to watch (that's if they for some reason don't want to watch it). to see what can be made of a simple bank robber's film.
