The on-screen chemistry between Paul Newman and Robert Redford is probably unmatched. With Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973), these actors with director George Roy Hill made two of the greatest, most entertaining films.
The classic buddy film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid has aged very well in no small part to William Goldman’s smart script and Hill’s creative and spot-on direction. With the astoundingly beautiful Katharine Ross and one of the best movie endings in cinematic history, this film is a must-see and also one to repeatedly revisit.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:
