Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

AFI 10-10Trucking through the AFI 10 of 10 list we watched “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”. Jake said it was one of his dad’s favorite movies growing up. Paired with Pizza and a coke we enjoyed picking out anachronisms and discussing how young both Redford and Newman look. It’s an enjoyable western with an interesting action/wit combo.

The piece of trivia we both enjoyed about this movie is that Paul Newman did his own bicycle stunts, after his stunt man was unable to stay on the bike, except for the scene where Butch crashes backwards into the fence, which was performed by cinematographer Conrad L. Hall. (thanks, IMDB)
