I am 30 years old and grew up to this movie, due to my father, and always enjoyed it as a youngster.
Great dialogue, scenes, characters, and oh yeah a great Western film. Can't stress how great of a film this is, but just really watching it over the years has made it so much better. I can't see how anyone would trash this movie or consider it a waste of time. Definitely worth a watch. Disclaimer: I have a framed pic of the last scene hanging in my room ha.
It is my favorite film of all time, and the biggest reason for that is because of its script by William Goldman. It's very rare in film that a script has perfect lines in it from beginning to end, but this film is an example of what can be achieved by Hollywood screenwriters.
It was William Goldman's script of this movie that sparked my passion for the American cinema. Though most Westerns of the cinema past have serious and gritty tones to them, this film has just the right mix of comedy, wit, and adventure. The presence by these two Hollywood legends has help cement this film as one of the greatest movies ever made - according to organizations like the American Film Institute.
The direction by George Roy Hill is first rate, and much credit also has to be given to cinematographer Conrad Hall, who did a great job giving this film the superior look of the Old West. Katherine Ross adds to this film in the role as the beautiful Etta Place, as does the score, which makes us feel good about going to the movies.
This was the film that, for the first time, got audiences to root for "the bad guys". This film should be shown in every film school to show film students how to make a theatrical film. I will always love this movie, and indeed, this movie is something special. I can remember seeing this movie, at the Colony Theater in Portsmouth Virginia, when it was first released.
Since then, I've seen it at least 30 times, most recently last night. In reading the reviews submitted about this movie it makes me happy to see that most of the people agree with my opinion. How could you not like these characters, along with Etta, "those guys" following them and eventually Strother [who will always be remembered for his "what we have here is a failure to communicate" in Cool Hand Luke] Martin?
Not to mention the scenes where Etta enters the picture, when Butch has to fight Logan, when they have to jump in the water and, of course, the ending sequence of events. I won't say "they don't make them like they used to", but this one is a keeper. Seeing this film again on DVD -- more than 30 years after the first time I saw it -- I'm struck by two things.
First, it holds up well for a movie so redolent of a particular time the s, of course, not the s. Second, whether the filmmakers fully intended it this way or not, it's really a very good film about a topic Westerns don't tackle often: arrested adolescence. They may be charming, but their whole lives revolve around their narcissistic pal-ship. For them, being outlaws doesn't seem to be about expressing anti-social impulses or even getting money they haven't earned, but merely about hanging out with each other.
Their talk with each other is mainly brittle ritualized patter and stock jokes, mixed with Butch's pipe dreams. They can't talk about anything serious even at the end, when they must realize -- at some level -- that they're about to die. Screenwriter William Goldman emphasizes the oddly callow, adolescent tone of their relationship by repeatedly having them express surprise when they stumble over some bit of biography -- their real names, or the fact that Sundance is from New Jersey -- that you'd think real friends would have known about decades ago.
The movie's whole point is that Butch and Sundance can't develop any type of dramatic arc. Harshly changing times demand they change with the times or die -- and they can't change and ultimately choose, by default, to die.
They can't even change enough to keep Etta Place with them, even though both Butch and Sundance really do love her, in their way. Etta, in contrast to Butch and Sundance, is harshly realistic about her life and her limits -- she knows she isn't strong enough to die with them or to see them die. Butch and Sundance, as far as we can see, don't care about much outside themselves and Etta.
This is why the movie's ending -- that famous freeze frame -- is so perfect. Butch and Sundance are secure, together, in their niche in history. They don't have to worry about changing times or the baffling world outside themselves any longer.
They've won out over time and change -- the only way anybody ever can. Let me state right now that "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is one of the greatest westerns of all time. It even deserves its place in the top of America's best movies This writer even rated the film nine stars. It deserves all of them. On the other hand, its heroes are really anti-heroes. Yes they are the criminals, but because they are good-looking and likable and charming and humorous we root for them.
But this is not the message of the traditional westerns that were about the noble guys who won in the end played by William S. These bad guys were so unabashedly immoral that people booed them in movie theaters.
But for several years beforethe framework of the original American Western was transforming. Perhaps movie audiences became bored with the good guys winning.
Then there were the attitudes of the counter-culture. So characters of ambiguous morality began to become central; if they still lost at film's end, they at least got sympathy. Our movie is about the "Wild Bunch," last of the outlaw gangs of the old American West. Its specialty was robbing banks and trains on horseback. But the frontier had closed inand even the remaining wild western pockets were becoming less of a haven.
Not only was the telegraph expanding, but the telephone and automobile were already invented. Civilization and technology were making the old time gunslingers obsolete. The Pinkerton detectives and the Union Pacific Railroad were becoming more resourceful. There were less and less places of refuge, although Butch Cassidy's band did well enough at Hole-in-the-Wall pass north of Casper in Wyoming.
The feature is finely crafted, although it probably gathers more from the legend rather than from historical fact. There are quite a few memorable scenes: Opening Thomas Edison Company silent movie that features The Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, fancy gun-work by the Sundance Kid in the sepia-toned vignette, Butch and Logan in the knife fight during the gang rebellion, the blown-up express car with flying dollar bills, continuous posse chases, the Newman-Ross bicycle scene, an angry bull, the cliff jump on horseback, the near-botched bank robbery in Bolivia where the two men clumsily attempt to speak Spanish, the ending freeze frame shootout.
Although folks get shot in this film, we are spared the endless gore that characterized some filmmakers, like Sam Peckinpah. Butch Cassidy Paul Newman is the talker, the planner, the brains of the outfit; the Sundance Kid Robert Redford is silent and brooding, but also quick with a gun.
Wittily the two leads play off against one another in a sardonic manner. A third important lead, the lovely Katherine Ross Etta Placeplays a delightful foil between the two men. By the way, two surviving photographs confirm that the real Etta Ethel Place was one of the most attractive females of the Old West. Butch Cassidy really did blow up a United Pacific railroad express car to smithereens near Wilcox, Wyoming on 2 June Employee E.
Woodcock was staggered, but survived. Pinkerton agent Charles Angelo Siringo was already hot on the trail. Siringo's name was not used in the movie. Because of an error by another, Siringo just missed capturing Butch and Sundance. By the way, Siringo tracked desperadoes from Alaska to Mexico. In an attempt at amnesty between Butch and Utah Governor Wells failed. Sundance may have married Etta in December Louis World's Fair in Pinkerton agent Frank Di Maio, who took over from Charlie Siringo in Argentina, had discovered the exact LP) of Sundance and Etta, but either a tip or the rainy season ruined his chances of capture.
Curry was shot to death by a sheriff in ; Carver was killed by lawmen in To escape capture in after he had escaped from jail, Logan shot himself. Although he was captured, tried, LP), and sent to prison inhe did a very good deed in jail. So he was pardoned by New Mexico Governor Otero in Thereafter Lay went straight for the rest of his life; he died in AaronCapenBanner 14 September I'd much rather watch those accounts than this film Bob Pr.
After the special posse of experts is finally formed and is pursuing them too well, Butch Cassidy Paul Newman and the Sundance Kid Robert Redford move their bank robbing business to South America accompanied by the Kid's girlfriend, Etta Katharine Ross.
This was the breakout role for Robert Redford's movie career Redford named the "Sundance Institute" and the annual "Sundance Film Festival" that he founded in honor of this effect. While some respected critics, e. I agree with the majority: it remains remarkably fresh and fun.
There's so much clever banter throughout between the two stars, it borders on comedy so much we become oblivious to the scores of people we see killed during the story's unfolding. Its Oscar winning screenplay very much draws on actual people and events but please see Wikipedia's article on Butch Cassidy for how closely the movie mirrors reality. I saw this movie when it first came out, like, almost 40 years ago.
Was it really that long ago? I guess it was. Anyway, I remember it as being a good movie and I haven't seen it since. So now I have kids who are teenagers and so I think, hey, maybe they'd like to see a good western, funny and entertaining, so I put it in my Netflix queue, and it finally came up last week and we watched it last weekend. What a disappointment. For the life of me, I cannot understand why I ever liked this movie or how it got the reputation it has.
It is simply a bad movie that does not hold up well. What makes it bad? The one attribute I would give this movie is boring. Really boring. The scenes just dragged on and on and it got so that I just wanted it to end. What was Hill thinking? If he wanted to establish a relationship between Newman and Ross, the length of that scene could have been cut by about two thirds.
Likewise later on, when the camera was panning across sepia photographs of the three main characters to illustrate them making their way down to Bolivia.
Again, way too long. We already got the point, but still the sequence dragged on interminably. I actually hit the FF button on my DVD remote at one point and even at 2X, I was surprised how long it took to get to the end of that sequence. And the chemistry between Redford and Newman was almost lifeless, like a glass of soda left out overnight. I don't why, but all the lines like "who ARE those guys? Also, a good actress can light up the screen; but Katherine Ross was about as incandescent as an sick firefly.
True, she was not given much to do in this film, but what she did get, she did poorly, reciting her lines mostly in a dull monotone. It's as if she was anticipating her later role in "The Stepford Wives" which, incidentally, was a much better movie than this one. So I don't know why everybody thinks this movie is so wonderful; I did not find it so and I guess I will have to be in the minority. I have heard a lot about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, story and movie wise.
But Butch Cassidy was pretty slow paced and doesn't even have much of a story. So why the big fuss? Robert Redford and Paul Newman had good chemistry and I did believe in their friendship and partnership sort of speak.
This movie was also beautifully shot, so there are a few points where I can say I had a positive view on the movie. But I felt like there was no story and it just wasn't really my type of movie that I could get into. I hope most of IMDb users understand, we've all been there. But if you want my opinion for those of you who don't enjoy Westerns, only stick to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
If you want to, give Butch Cassidy a chance, but I did warn you. Newman and Redford pair up for the first time as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: a pair of outlaws that are perpetually robbing. They are so prolific with their robbing that they take their craft across the border into Bolivia. Not even a language barrier is going to stop them from taking other people's money. As much as this is about the wild lawless lifestyle of Butch and the SDK it is probably one of the first love triangles, LP).
Sundance is hook up with Etta Place Katharine Ross but it's clear that Butch loves her and she loves him. Somehow this criminal triumvirate does just fine emotionally where there is no outward hostility of one towards the other.
I think that flowed from the light-heartedness of the movie. The movie was never too serious, even LP) the most dire times for the two protagonists. I think that was the biggest selling point for me. They were outlaws, and they would kill on occasion but it was almost LP) they were college frat boys who never stopped fratting.
They lived life loose and carefree and nothing was going to change that. Not exactly a hit with the critics of the time, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid had no such problems at the box office or with longevity of popularity. It is still today one of the few Western films that none Western fans enjoy immensely.
Much of this can be attributed to the wonderful buddy buddy chemistry between Newman and Redford, and of course the general blending of ragamuffin drama with cheeky chappy comedy. The casting as finished was not exactly set in stone, Newman was always in but was originally going to play the part of Sundance.
McQueen was pencilled in for Cassidy, as was Lemmon while Beatty was mooted as well, but eventually a chance was taken on Redford and Newman switched to the role of Cassidy.
On such things can a movie be made or broken, as it turned out it was the ace in the pack as infamously legendary characters were brought vividly to life. Only based on the basic real life facts of the Hole-in-the-Wall gang led by Butch Cassidy, the film follows the simple formula of two lovable rogue entrepreneurs being chased by a Pinkerton posse whilst robbing their way to a new life in Bolivia.
A gorgeous sepia opening sets the standard for the visual treats to follow, with over a quarter of the film being an extended chase sequence through the landscapes. But in the context of the scenes, and the changing of the West even the Western movie in factthe music mostly works. Yes, "Raindrops" is a touch corny in essence, but the accompanying sequences as the bicycle replaces the horse for a major metaphor - and the warmth of the Etta Place Ross a little bland and Cassidy friendship is born out - it's hardly a film killer.
In fact it's a daring move by the makers. Hugely influential on Westerns that would follow and spawning further tales of the exploits of Butch and Sundance, Hill's movie has well and truly earned its much loved reputation. With the constant by-play between Redford and Newman always engaging who are those guys? Because as the freeze frame sepia ending passes muster as a blaze of glory, it's indeed true that Hill, Hall, Goldman, Newman and Redford have made a true Western classic.
This movie foreshadows well the modern Hollywood blockbuster. It gets all its mileage out of individual gags that are sort of strung end-to-end, and there you have the movie. Everything is a bit light and fluffy, and the whole production seems to say "Look! Heartthrob actors, dressed up like cowboys, doing cowboy stuff! Best watched after Sergio Leone's masterpieces have LP) from memory. I didn't take that advice and found myself thinking "this is so weak!
