Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the “buddy film” with this box office smash set in the Old West. The true story of fast draws and wild rides, battles with posses, train and bank robberies, a torrid love affair, and a new lease on outlaw life in far away Bolivia. It is also a character study of a remarkable friendship between Butch – possibly the most likeable outlaw in frontier history – and his closest associate, the fabled, ever-dangerous Sundance Kid. Paul Newman and Robert Redford shine in the roles that will forever identify them as suave, daring outlaws on the run who fall in love with the same woman (Katharine Ross).

Did You Know?

  • Paul Newman’s charity for children with serious medical conditions is named Hole in the Wall Camp after Butch’s gang.
  • On the first day of shooting, involving the train robbery scenes, Katharine Ross came to the set to watch. There were five cameras and only four operators, so cinematographer Conrad L. Hall put her on the extra camera. He showed her how to operate it and how to move it to get her shot. Director George Roy Hill was furious but said nothing the whole day. At the end of the day, however, he banned her from the set except when she was working.
  • The real Butch Cassidy (whose name was actually Robert Leroy Parker) got his nickname because he once worked in a butcher’s shop. The Sundance Kid, real name Harry Alonzo Longabaugh, got his nickname because he once was arrested in the Wyoming town of Sundance.
  • Paul Newman said that this was the most fun he’d ever had making a film. He and Robert Redford drank a lot of beer in Mexico.
