Product Description
"Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid", a 1969 American Western film based loosely on fact, tells the story of the Wild West outlaws Robert Parker and Harry Longabaugh. In 2003 this film was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."The film setting is Wyoming in the late 1890's. Butch is a clever, verbal and likeable leader. His companion, Sundance' is a man of few words but is a dead-shot with his pistol. Sundance lets Butch make the decisions as far as who/what/when to rob a train or later bank, and when to leave for Bolivia, as the law is closing in on them. Butch believes that Bolivia is a 'robber's paradise,' which it isn't. The two even get honest jobs briefly as payroll guards where Butch ends up shooting his first man. Even though they are robbers, this is not a violent film. The final scene could have been a real blood bath, but the film makers of that era chose to not do that. The films lasting qualities are the great, fun and inter-dependent relationship between Butch, Sundance, and Etta. There is a genuine chemistry between Paul Newman and Robert Redford when they are together in scenes that is pure magic. Robert Redford later named his famous film festival after his character in this film, namely The Sundance Film Festival.
