“Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” is a 1969 western directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman, who won an Oscar for the original screenplay. The script is loosely based on facts, following the lives of two Wild West outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker known as Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and Harry Longabaugh known as “The Sundance Kid” (Robert Redford). Butch Cassidy is the leader of the Hole in the Wall Gang and Sundance Kid is his right hand man. When the gang robs a Union Pacific train they find themselves hunted by lawmen hired to take them down at all costs. Butch and Sundance decide to escape to Bolivia along with Sundance’s lover Etta Place (Katharine Ross). Butch believes Bolivia to be a robbers’ paradise, but is soon disillusioned with the poverty of the country. Still, the trio becomes infamous for their bank robberies, but they soon grow tired with the life of crime and try to go straight, working as security guards for a mining company. After their employer is killed by local bandits they return to their old outlaw ways, leading Etta to dump them and return to the United States. Butch and Sundance steal a payroll and hide out in a small town, but a boy recognizes the brand on the mules from the payroll convoy and alerts the local police, setting up a showdown which Butch and Sundance have little chances of getting out of alive.
