Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid DVD - Just The Good Stuff Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid ranked # 50 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a 1969 Western film which tells the story of two lighthearted outlaws, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid who seem more inclined to trade quips than shots. It stars Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and Katharine Ross.

The film's protagonists bore only limited resemblance to the actual Cassidy and partner, but the film popularized their legends nonetheless. The movie was written by William Goldman and directed by George Roy Hill.

It won Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Best Music, Original Score for a Motion Picture (not a Musical), Best Music, Song (Burt Bacharach and Hal David for "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head") and Best Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Material Not Previously Published or Produced.

It was nominated for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Sound. Adjusted for inflation, it is among the top 100 grossing movies of all time and top 10 for its decade partly due to subsequent re-releases.

When Newman and Redford came aboard, originally their roles were reversed, with Newman as Sundance and Redford as Cassidy. Fox did not want Redford to play the part, but director George Roy Hill persisted. Redford has noted that this film catapulted him to stardom and changed his career forever.

The Sundance Film Festival, begun by Robert Redford, is named for his role in this film, as is his Utah ski resort, Sundance.

In 2003 the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.
