Skadinavian Edition, PAL/Region 2 Blu-Ray 1080p High Definition Widescreen DTS-HD Master Audio: Subtitles: Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, English. Features: Commentary, All Of What Follows Is True: The Making Of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid Documentary The Wild Bunch: The True Tale Of Butch & Sundance Featurette Deleted Scenes With Optional Commentary. One of the most popular screen westerns ever made, this Academy Award winning classic blends adventure, romance and comedy to tell the true story of the West's most likeable outlaws. No one is quicker than Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) when it comes to get rich quick schemes, and his sidekick Sundance (Robert Redford) is a wizard with a gun. When these two bungling bank and train robbers tire of running from the law, they set out for Bolivia with Sundance's girlfriend (Katharine Ross). Though they can barely speak enough Spanish to communicate 'This is a stick-up', that's only a minor detail to the two nicest "bad-guys" who ever rode the West.

Very, very disappointing Blu Ray. Yes it has been given 5.1 sound but the picture has not been cleaned up or improved in any way. It is no better than VHS quality. I am sure, although I have not checked it yet, that my old DVD copy has a better picture than this Blu Ray. Also it is a strange set-up on the disc. It went straight into the film with no Menu first and then when it had finished and had shown the Copyright Warning message, it started the film again as if it is on a loop. There must be a Menu as otherwise I do not know how you access the 'extras' but just haven't had a chance to investigate yet. All in all, for such a film classic, this has been given really poor treatment. If you have this on DVD already then don't bother with this Blu Ray. I just hope that at some point before I leave this Earth that a version is brought out that the film deserves.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is one of the greatest westerns ever made.
The on screen chemistry between Newman and Redford is legendary.
The film is exciting, funny, brilliantly acted, superbly directed, and beautifully shot.
Magnificent Film.

This film hasn’t aged at all! The two sidekicks are just as pleasing on the eye as they were back in 1969. This is a great film and real classic of that era. The scenery in the film is to die for, no wonder the cinematography won an ‘AA.’ The script is pitch perfect, witty, and without sentimentality. The picture quality on the standard DVD is average. Redford got the Oscar for best actor ahead of Newman!
Robert Leroy Parker (Butch Cassidy) & Harry Alonzo Longaugh (Sundance) were real outlaws, of similar ages, and were robbing trains etc., nearing the end of our ‘Victorian period.’
I must admit that I could remember very few of the details from the film after all these years, except the bike ride & song, and the cliff jump of course. I’d totally forgotten that they fled to Bolivia where they so called met their end … just as Che Guevara had done in 1967!
This is still a top film and very captivating – Newman and Redford are just full of charisma and the film has a very good storyline and keeps you there throughout. You can’t beat quality?

This is it. One of the few movies that achieves absolute perfection.

Three stars at the height of their skills, Newman and Redford obviously, and Katherine Ross, once very wisely described as "ridiculously pretty".

From the opening sequence with its transition from sepia to colour, through to the end where we're grateful not to be shown the inevitable, this never dreams of so much as thinking about putting a toe out of place. Butch's irrepressible optimism and ideas, Sundance's dourness, it is just flippin' perfect. The ultimate bickering buddy movie.

In your monthly re-watching of this (surely anything less deserves a jail sentence), there is always some new point to see.

The humour throughout is magnificent, usually leading from Butch, and the great, great lines. "You, uh think you used enough dynamite thar, Butch ?", "Rules? In a knife fight ? No rules", "somebody say one, two, three, go!", "You can't swim, are you crazy? The fall's gonna kill you !", all misquoted a bit, and I don't really watch it every month, but....

I can't really have a single favourite movie, but I do have a top shelf. No movie deserves a place on there more than this. If "Desert Island Discs" did movies, this is one of the six.

How do you ensure somebody's legacy as a hero? In the good old days, you wrote a book. Nowadays, you make a movie - and if you're lucky and it's really, really successful, you can retrospectively even make legends out of dangerous criminals. Not that that always works, of course. But with two great actors with instant chemistry (Paul Newman and Robert Redford), a script (by William Goldman) bursting with one-liners making the audience bowl over laughing every other minute, without once derailing into slapstick, a director's (George Roy Hill's) ingenious use of the occasion to turn a whole genre on its head, and some of the world's most beautiful locations, filmed by an exceptional cinematographer (Conrad Hall) ... you just may pull it off. Case in point: "Butch and Sundance."
While Butch Cassidy (Robert LeRoy Parker) was known as the Old West's Robin Hood for his charm, masterly planning, avoidance of bloodshed - he really did claim he'd never shot anyone - and his stance for settlers' rights vis-a-vis the wealthy cattle barons, Sundance (Henry Longbaugh) had the reputation of a loner; a fast draw repeatedly in and out of prison before even turning twenty-one. After several of their Wild Bunch/Hole in the Wall Gang associates had seen the short end of the stick in various encounters with the law, Butch and Sundance determined things were getting too hot in the West and, unlike the outlaws who not much earlier had stood it out until the end (Billy the Kid, the James Gang and the O.K. Corral gunfighters), decided to head for South America.
