BUTCH CASSIDY AND
THE SUNDANCE KID
(George Roy Hill, 1969)
Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy, Robert Redford as Sundance
Kid and Katherine Ross as Etta Place, the hot-blooded school
teacher who becomes emotionally involved with both New-
man and Redford as she joins in their exploits as highway-
men, gunmen, and train robbers in both the old west and
South America. A fine study of a remarkable friendship be-
tween Butch and the Sundance Kid, a story told with warmth
and great humor. Music by Burt Bacharach.
