Western Movie Matinees: Laughing Out Loud – Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Commemorating the film’s 50th anniversary, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid stars Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy, who is full of ideas, and Robert Redford as the Sundance Kid, who is all action and skill.

William Goldman’s clever script and George Roy Hill’s creative directing contributed to this world-wide success. 110 minutes. Appropriate for ages 13+.
