Robert Leroy Parker (Butch Cassidy) & Harry Alonzo Longaugh (Sundance) were real outlaws, of similar ages, and were robbing trains etc., nearing the end of our ‘Victorian period.’
I must admit that I could remember very few of the details from the film after all these years, except the bike ride & song, and the cliff jump of course. I’d totally forgotten that they fled to Bolivia where they so called met their end … just as Che Guevara had done in 1967!
This is still a top film and very captivating – Newman and Redford are just full of charisma and the film has a very good storyline and keeps you there throughout. You can’t beat quality?
This iconic Western and true story doesn’t take place in what is considered (by some) to be the “Wild West Era” (ie 1865 1895), but in the early part of the Twentieth Century. This true story takes place when my Grandparents were alive and for me that makes this incredible film more real, more tangible somehow.
I watched the film on a DVD that came with some insightful and interesting Extra Features.
On that DVD (ASIN: B00005KK3J) you get:
“Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid” (1 hour 45 minutes)
Option English Subtitles for the hard of hearing.
Audio is 2.0 Mono
Commentary from Director George Roy Hill, Lyricist Hal david, Associate Producer Robert Crawford and Cinematographer Conrad Hall.
1994 Interviews with Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katherine Ross, scriptwriter William Goldman and composer Burt Bacharach (about 48 minutes in total) and also including “Some of what follows is true” and “All of what follows is true”
“Making Of” Documentary (40 minutes)
The film has many fine points, but none more than its two protagonists, Butch and Sundance. Butch is wonderful and funny. When he orders Sundance to kill a member of their gang if he loses in a fair fight, his creepy ride around the house on the bike and his miserable attempt at Spanish are done to perfection. Sundance, with his miserable temper and wonderful shooting and the relationship between these two works like a dream. The sets drip from the screens and are utterly fantastic.
One final word goes to the ending, I do not wish to give it away, but your opinion of what happens next will determine what kind of a person you are. Personally it could not have been done better, as it had to be done given that these two men rob banks, but we are left believing, that maybe, just maybe it didn't...
