Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Monday, August 12th at 7pm (hosted) & Tuesday, August 13th at 1pm

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. With its iconic pairing of Paul Newman and Robert Redford, jaunty screenplay and Burt Bacharach score, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid has gone down as among the defining moments in late-’60s American cinema. Directed by George Roy Hill. (1969, 1h 50m)

“Note-perfect performances, a screenplay steeped in both nostalgia and a timely sense of insight, and anti-heroes you can’t help but love: it’s no surprise that the always re-watchable Butch And Sundance was once labelled the most likeable film ever made.” – Bob McCabe, Empire Magazine

MONDAY NIGHT PRESENTER: Jim Newsom is a musician and songwriter, retired bank executive, and was known locally as “the guy on WHRO for 40 years.”
