The 1969 American Western brought together actors Paul Newman and Robert Redford for the first time in their careers and began the start of a lifetime friendship between the pair. At that time, Newman’s career had the actor playing mostly serious screen roles, while Redford was typecast as the light and happy foil. Things changed when the pair decided to reverse roles for the film, with Newman playing the quick-witted, ever-plotting Butch Cassidy, and Redford the quiet mysterious sharpshooter Sundance. What remains is one of the most famous ‘buddy’ films ever made and a long-lasting friendship that draws viewers into the heart of the story. Burt Bacharach’s soundtrack plays on the 60s feel.
