While we here at readerswest.com focus on the literature of today pertaining to the old west, something we plan to do in the future is to take a look at the movies pertaining to the Old West as well.
One of the first westerns that made an impact on many people was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
Paul Newman and Robert Redford teamed up in the George Roy Hill-directed buddy flick, which is still one of our favorite movies of all time here at readerswest.com.
We won’t go into the specifics, because most of us have seen the movie more than once. If you haven’t, no matter how old you are, don’t go rent it now. Just buy it.
Newman will be remembered as a great actor and a humanitarian. Even though he played a notorious character who met his demise in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Newman was truly one of the good guys.
