Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
It’s now more than fifty years since the Sixties ended with a year of classic movies.
The romanticised telling of the story of the real life bank robbers was the first teaming of the dream team of Redford and Newman (who were back together a few years later in the equally popular The Sting). It was a box office smash, won 4 Oscars, and featured more than its share of memorable scenes. Whether you prefer the bike ride to “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on my Head” (Burt Bacharach’s Oscar winning composition) or the freeze frame on their final escape, it’s a great film.
And that’s no doubt one of the reasons why original posters from the film’s first release are so popular, and ever harder to find (as most people who buy one frame it and hang it on their wall).
This is a nice example of the popular Style B poster
