Critic's Pick

'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'

June 11, 1995|Peter Rainer

Paul Newman and Robert Redford (from left) star in this mega-popular 1969 Western, and a lot of people have fond memories of it still. As outlaws perpetually on the run from an entire fleet of posses and lawmen, the two glamor boys get to go buddy-buddy big time. They have an easy rapport that sets the stage for their subsequent pairing in "The Sting." True Western fans tend to dislike this film--deriding it, with some justice, as nothing but a "Beverly Hills Western." But it has that danged "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" theme song, and the scene where Butch and Sundance jump off a cliff into raging waters (HBO Tuesday at 6 p.m.).
