Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Top 10 Westerns

Paul Newman and Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are bank robbers who are on the run from the law
Plot: Successful turn-of-the-century bank robbers Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) of the Hole in the Wall Gang decide to target trains, with mixed results. Forced to go on the lam, they flee to Bolivia, with a deadly posse on their trail.

Perks: Because Americans are so often fed the typical heroic cowboy scenario, it’s a welcome relief when we suddenly find ourselves rooting for the bad guys. Newman and Redford’s antiheroes may be thieves, but audiences can’t resist their charm, rugged good looks, moral emphasis on friendship, nor Paul Newman riding Katherine Ross around on a bicycle to the Academy Award-winning song, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head."
