1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a modern classic. Paul Newman and Robert Redford define movie star power and charisma as the most charming outlaws to every grace the screen (at least until they teamed up again in The Sting). There are so many classic moments of dialogue in this western, "Did you use enough dynamite, Butch?" "Who are these guys!?" and "Swim??? The fall is going to kill you!". One of the all time great screenplays by William Goldman, perfectly executed by director George Roy Hill and accompanied by a perfect Burt Bacharach score, this is one of the best films of the sixties. Look for beautiful Katherine Ross and hilarious Strother Martin in supporting roles. Funny, exciting and smart, Butch and Sundance rob an A+ and a spot in my all-time top 100.
