Overview

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is given a fine treatment on DVD. The cinematography, which won Conrad Hall his first Oscar, was sorely mistreated by years in pan-and-scan video prints. The 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer thankfully restores Hall's stunning photography to its original theatrical release quality. The commentary track features director George Roy Hill, lyricist Hal David, associate producer Robert Crawford, and Conrad Hall. While scene-specific, the style of the comments suggest that the participants were recorded separately. The 45-minute documentary included was made at the time of the filming. Though 30 years old, it is extensive and details every aspect of the production from the movie's start to its climax, including historical information about the characters. Finally, to compensate for the lack of a current documentary, 1994 interviews with Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katharine Ross, writer William Goldman, and composer Burt Bacharach are included from a separate menu. Trailers and an alternate end-credit roll are also included. Between the commentary, the 1969 featurette, and the retrospective interviews, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is an exhaustive historical document of a classic film, augmented by the terrific digital transfer.

One of a handful of truly great movies, such as Casablanca or Gone With The Wind, where it all comes together -- characters, plot, script, chemistry. An action-packed romantic Western...and did you notice the cast?

Just a great film, in so many ways.

Hollywood doesn't make movies like this anymore. You really grow to love the characters in this movie. The adventure in this movie is why kids grow up wanting to be cowboys. Its exciting, entertaining, suspenseful and lighthearted fun. I saw this movie for the first time on AMC and rushed out to buy it the next day. This was the most fun I ever had watching a Western.

I saw this movie when it first came out and have since watched it at least a dozen times. Not quite your usual western ( no John Wayne ) there was plenty of action and humor. The chemistry between these two actors was obvious and added and draws the viewer into the movie. The ending came too soon, but true to most westerns, they went out fighting. After the death of Paul Newman, I had to buy the DVD, as such movies may not come again, although they're getting better.

This is one of those movies that you never forget about after watching. I have not seen this movie in 10 years, but yet I look for the soundtrack and songs all the time, but of course never purchase. I will have to get this soon to enjoy with my family.

Butch Cassidy and Sundace are 2 of the most likable outlaws.Butch and Sundance are good friends and though they have their diferences they still come out on top. This movie draws you in and you don't want to leave. The ending is very powerful and a bit sad. I highly recomend it.

I am a proud owner of this film. I am proud I saw this film about 7 times now so far. This is a great entertainment. You got two great looking guys, who happen to be villians, but you would want to say ''Yeah, so what?''. Paul Newman shined like sun with his beautiful blue eyes. Robert Redford, so quick and terse, makes you feel going like ''Wow!''. I'll bet by the end of the film, you will say you want to be like Sundance Kid, going on how impressive you can draw as fast as Sundance Kid. Excellent Documentary in the end of the film, outlining the points of the film, especially the use of gun-play to keep it real, esp. the loading of the gun. Very sad note that George Roy Hill died last December. This is a remarkable job George Roy Hill have done, gracing the art of filmmaking. You can see it through the use of camera, motion, and colors. This is actually one the finest and most enjoyable western films I have ever seen, easily proclaiming this film to be one of the great arts. There are many sequences in this film I always think about such as one part when the card player goes 'Hey kid how just good are you?'' Bang bang bang bang!, the bicycle ride singing raindrops falling' by Burt Bacharach, the fear on their eyes going ''who are these guys?'', and finally, never to omit, the great ending that will stand the test of time as being the most sublime way to die. I will tell you again...watch this film, I will guarantee you that you will fall in love with this film.

An amazing western movie. Absolutely terrific filmmaking. Robert Redford is so dazzling that he can make the audience to go wild over him. Having Paul Newman in the film gives a comic aspect that the movie is never dull. Katherine Ross is a beautiful actress. What an amazing shot of the introduction. Just following parts. Never the whole picture. So focused. Following the parts describes how a masterpiece of the film is. great color use. Excellent use of shadows. The ''How good are you?'' is an instant classic. I loved the special feature of the film where George Roy Hill does his narrative on how he made the film in a year and 3 months. he took the chance to caption the segment. That is rare since most movies seldom do this. As a deaf viewer, I am at most respect for him. He spoke of many interesting thing. George Roy Hill is an artist and has a great sense of humor. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a mind-blowing film that has to be studied by filmmakers all around, who want to make great classics.

This movie might have been a great accomplishment for Robert Redford but it really bored me. It was very slow and not a lot said. For the time period it was shot, it was okay, kind of like the series 'Chips' with Erik Estrada.
