Year: 1969
Genre: Adventure, Western, Action and Classics
Conclusion: 5/5
Fantastic film! One of the best films ever made. A film I could happily watch again. The casting and directing is excellent. At the Academy Awards in 1970 it won 4 Oscars. They were for Best Cinematography, Best Music-Original Score for a Motion Picture, Best Music-Original Song and also for Best Writing-Story and Screenplay Based on Material Not Previously Published or Produced. At the Bafta Awards in 1971 it won Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Film, Best Film Editing, Best Screenplay, Best Sound Track. Robert Redford got the award for Best Actor and Katharine Ross got an award for Best Actress. Burt Bacharach got a special award for the Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music. At the Golden Globes in 1970 it only won 1 award and that was for Best Original Score. All of the scenes in Bolivia were actually filmed in Mexico. This has more BAFTA’s than any other film. In real life no one really knows what happened to Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. It still remains an open discussion. This is on Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced at the start of 2012.
