Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid
One of my all time favorites, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid holds up well even today. If you've never seen it or it's been ages since you last saw it, put it on your list. Made in 1969 and starring two of Hollywood's most famous faces, Robert Redford and Paul Newman, it was directed by George Roy Hill, was nominated for seven Oscars and won four for Cinematography, Best Song for "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," Best Original Score and Best Original Screenplay. There are so many scenes I will never forget but the most famous is Sundance and Butch escaping the posse chasing them by jumping off a cliff into a rushing river and Sundance's exclamation right before he jumps. As well as Butch's remark every time they think they've lost the posse only to see them on their trail again: "Who are those guys?" You will also get to enjoy two of the most beautiful men ever to grace the screen and my personal favorite, Robert Redford. Enjoy the movie and the view.
