Fav Films of the 60’s ~#4~ Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid

12 Jul

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head was a huge song when I was a kid. They played it on every station on the radio. But more than the song, The Movie from which it came was by far my most favorite “western”. More than just a western, this film had characters that you loved, played by Robert Redford and Paul Newman. Butch and Sundance were funny, intelligent and good looking. The film is only loosely based on historical fact, but it popularized the legends of these Western icons.
The film was directed by George Roy Hill and produced at 20th Century Fox by John Foreman from a screenplay by William Goldman. Along with Newman and Redford, the film also starred Katharine Ross, Strother Martin, Henry Jones, Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, Ted Cassidy, Kenneth Mars and Donnelly Rhodes.
